Piano Accident

Bucharest, Romania, 19 september 2010 - A completely stupid accident happened during a water jumping contest held in Bucharest, as part of the Red Bull Flugtag event. A young woman aged 26 broke her spine and could remain handicapped for the rest of her life, after jumping in the Dambovita River aboard a piano-shaped pseudo “flying machine.” The woman passed out and was rushed to hospital, where doctors said she is in a very serious condition and will probably bear the consequences for the rest of her life. The woman and her piano took off from a platform six meters above the water and the machine crashed into the river at a speed of 60 km/h.
