It's All Fun Til Someone Gets Hurt...


What could possibly go wrong with this?
Leapfrogging mayor 'devastated' after injuring council worker
By Lesley-Anne Henry
The Lord Mayor of Belfast said today he was "deeply sorry" after severely injuring a council worker during a promotional photo shoot.
Jim Rodgers is understood to have left the employee with severe back injuries after he tried to leap-frog over her for photographers.

Lorraine Mallon, who works for the arts section of Belfast City Council's development department, suffered a slipped disc and has not been able to return to work since the shoot last month.
Ms Mallon, who has worked for the council for two years, was dressed as a tomato to launch a gourmet garden event in Botanic Gardens last month.
It is believed Mr Rodgers accidentally struck her with his knee as he tried to vault over her.
