Woman breaks wrist at Eton Dorney
Posted Mon, 06 Aug 2012
A member of the crowd watching the rowing at the Olympics was injured in a fall as she was leaving Eton Dorney.
The woman broke her wrist as she lost her footing on the stairs when leaving the grandstands at the rowing venue and she has become the second injury victim at Eton Dorney since London 2012 got underway.
Another woman fell over in the stands on Saturday and subsequently needed hospital treatment on a hip injury.
And some visitors at other Olympic venues, such as Lord's and the Olympic Park, have also complained about their seats collapsing.
The Games' organising committee, LOCOG, has insisted that all of the 200,000 temporary seats at various venues have been inspected and that less than 100 have actually had to be replaced.
Meanwhile, a spokesman for LOCOG has revealed that the woman who broke her wrist in the latest fall was apparently confused by safety tape in the stairwell and he confirmed that the tape has now been removed.
