It seems that paintball and implants don't mix . . .


I was surprised to read that paintballs can be hazardous to some people's (synthetic) health. The Daily Mail reports:

A woman's breast implant was apparently ruptured when she was shot in the chest while paintballing.

The 26-year-old was hit at close range during the game in Croydon, south London.

Although she did not make a complaint at the time, she went to her GP two days later who told her that the implant had been punctured.

The woman, who has not been named, is now recovering at home following the alleged incident which is thought to be the first of its kind in Britain.

The company which runs the centre said they are now issuing extra padding to all women with breast implants.

An extra line has been added to an indemnity form warning paintballers that there is a risk implants can be damaged.


There's more at the link.

I guess, if paintballers shoot at each other, they can hardly be described as 'bosom buddies'!

I've not had that happen but my backside has ended up looking like a Picasso painting on crack.

We'll have to keep abreast of this situation and nip(ple) it in the bud in case it causes more people to go tits-up and win a booby prize when they get sacked and take a ribbing...

OK, I'll say it.
This post is useless without pics.

From Brigid:I've not had that happen but my backside has ended up looking like a Picasso painting on crack.

From paintball or other activities?

Hmmm. I wonder if there's a market for Kevlar implants.
