28-year-old Jamie Norman suffered deep slashes across his face, arms and legs after a trap door failed to open on the 60 mph VertiGo slide in Aqualandia.

Despite the support of his partner Vicki Holbrook, 30, and his two children, Norman suffered from extreme stress and low self-esteem following from the injuries, leading to his separation from his partner.

Norman is in counselling and exploring plastic surgery as an option.
