For Des Jarvis a few seconds of fun on a slide at a water park in Turkey, has left him with a life changing injury.
He was on holiday at the Didim Beach Resort in eastern Turkey in 2012 when the accident happened.
Des told ITV News Anglia that he used the slide correctly, as shown on instructions by the pool.
Now he's seeking compensation from First Choice, the travel operator, who he used to book his holiday.
