So earlier this year a group of people were riding a Rollercoaster at Alton Towers* (*a popular Theme Park which is UKs own equivalent of Universal/Disney World I guess) when an empty carriage got stuck mid loop and a carriage containing teen Chads and their girlfriends crashed into said stationary carriage.
Cue a 4 and a half hours, rescue attempt by emergency services where they were left hanging, trapped 25 feet at a 45 degree.
The impact of a shattered leg with bad blood being trapped meant an on site blood transfusion but despite this- the two girls had their legs amputated in hospital.
Both feared they would "miss out" on life- but instead were not only awared £4 million in compensation each by the Park (to keep it out of court) their Chad boyfriends (pictured above also involved on the ride) stuck by their side.
Said couples are now topping up their money and status by appearing (and selling their story) in every magazine and TV programme in a celebrity tour.
