Rugby Player Takes 2-Tons Off the Face


emmawinchEmma Winch and her rugby team were camping out by the Aberaeron Rugby Club, near Aberystwyth, West Wales prior to their match the following day. While she and two teammates were asleep in their tent, members of the unpronounceable youth team Merthyr Tydfil were pounding back booze and decided a fun prank was in order.

So they took a 5 foot wide cast-iron roller that checks in at a robust 2-tons and rolled it down a hill. At the bottom of the hill, among others, was Winch’s tent.

“I heard it coming. There was like a lot of banging and then I heard people laughing,” Winch recalled, “I stopped the roller with my head. My face was numb so I couldn’t feel much. I have had a lucky escape.”

She was taken to a local hospital before being airlifted to another, better-equipped facility where she is expected to make a full recovery.  

After the incident, 21 members of Merthyr Tydfil were arrested by police who conducted a flashlight identity search on the campsite.

One witness said: “‘There were three of them in the tent when lads from a visiting club thought it would be fun to set the roller free. It was on the top of a slight hill and they pushed it to get it going, knowing there were people camping in its path. It was a crazy, stupid thing to do  –  the young woman could have been killed.”
