Freak Dishwasher Accident

By May 30, 200315 Comments

There’s been a fair bit in the papers in the last couple of days about the freak dishwasher accident that killed that woman in Scotland (here’s the BBC News story). I was reading an article in the Daily Mail all about it yesterday – “very rare accident”, it said, “only one other case known in existence”, it said, a twelve year old boy back in 1997. Not so, I immediately countered – I had done exactly the same thing in 1985, while playboxing with my dad! I still have the amusingly placed scar on my right buttock. Sensing fame, I’ve duly fired off a couple of emails to the newspaper and the seemingly pointless Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents. I expect to be on This Morning with Fern Britton within days.
