A British holiday maker told how she cut a vein while driving on an & # 39; extreme & # 39; water slide in Bulgaria.
Jade Graves, 29, a mother from Hull, suffered the horror injury in the Aqua Paradise Water Park in Nessebar after a fall of 72 feet, 90 degrees.
She said she felt intense pain in her lower pelvic area as she hit the pool at the bottom and then looked down to see blood flowing down her legs.

Mrs Graves had to be rushed to the hospital for a blood transfusion and stitches to close the wound and spent five weeks in the UK recovering
Mrs Graves had to be rushed to the hospital after a serious blood loss, where she had a transfusion and had to spend four days in a hospital.
She then returned to the United Kingdom, where she had to take another five weeks off.
Ms. Graves suffered severe arterial bleeding, leading to haemorrhagic shock – where cells no longer have oxygen due to blood loss – and secondary anemia.
She said: & # 39; I still can't believe what happened to me on that slide.
& # 39; I was supposed to have a nice vacation with my family, but the whole experience was traumatic.
& # 39; When I hit the water, I was in a lot of pain and lost so much blood that I needed a transfusion. It was a complete nightmare and I am still deeply upset about it.
& # 39; I still don't know exactly what happened, because I followed all the rules of the lifeguard.

& # 39; I really hope the investigations can sort it out to the bottom because I don't want anyone else experiencing what I have. & # 39;
Mrs Graves says that she is now considering legal action against the water park, and Irwin Mitchell has hired to represent her.
Cheryl Palmer-Hughes and Tejire Akaunu, lawyers representing Jade, said in a joint statement: & # 39; This is a very worrying case in which a young woman suffered horrific injuries during what was meant to be a fun and relaxing time.
& # 39; Unfortunately, we see many of these cases at this specific time of year, and Jade's life has been turned completely upside down, because she suffered both mentally and physically.
& # 39; We have now started our investigation into the accident and are determined to give Jade the answers she needs to help her with her life. & # 39;
