The Croatian Times newspaper reported the 28-year-old New Zealand woman, known as Amy R, was having sex on a bathroom sink with an Englishman in the island town of Hvar when the porcelain broke and the sharp edge sliced her wrist, leaving her hand hanging by just the skin.
Police spokesman Kraljevic Gudelj said: “It appears they were engaged in a passionate act in the bathroom where at some stage the sink broke – leaving a jagged edge that severed the woman’s hand when she fell to the floor.”
The hand was reattached after a six-hour operation by surgeons in the city of Split.
The British participant fled and Croatian police are seeking him.
The Croatian Times said the couple had met in Croatia and ended up on a yacht called Anete in a local marina.
“The young woman almost died, and was only saved after she was airlifted to hospital where doctors managed to reattach the severed limb. It had only been attached by a small amount of skin,” the police spokesman said.
“We believe it was probably an accident but the British man has fled and the New Zealand girl is understandably hard to speak to.”
Yes that is right. Kiwi girls are difficult to speak to at the best of times. Newswarped is assuming that the Englishman has got someone somewhere who is expecting him to be faithful to them. Hence the rapid departure.
Surey no true Englishman would leave a girl who clearly needs a hand in such distress.
