The daughter of a woman whose leg was crushed in the wall collapse at Pontins Brean Sands believes her mum would have died - if she hadn’t been sat in her electric scooter.
Wendy's leg was crushed after a heating and air-con duct, which was attached to a wall, fell on guests in the holiday camp’s main entertainment room on Wednesday (February 20) night.
Her daughter, Hayley Kendle, who was with her mum at the time but was not hurt, said it took several members of staff to free her trapped mum from the rubble.
Once free from the debris, Hayley said it became apparent just how lucky her mum had been not to have lost her life.
Wendy was later taken to hospital with a crushed leg as well as a suspected broken hip.
She was one of six people who had to be taken to hospital following the incident, while another 18 were treated by paramedics at the scene.
Hayley said her mum was due to undergo surgery later today, when doctors will insert metal pins into her shattered leg.
An investigation by Sedgemoor District Council and the Health and Safety Executive is now underway, though it is expected to last several months.
A spokesperson for the council said: "A heating and air-con duct which had been boxed in and attached to the wall gave way. The ceiling has not collapsed.
"The investigation is likely to be complex and run for several months."
