Man Runs Through Leisure Centre To Ride BMX Off Diving Board

Man Runs Through Leisure Centre To Ride BMX Off Diving Board

For the most part, a trip out to the swimming baths is an innocent, risk-free day of fun.

But that's all it is, really. Excitement levels rarely peak, and adrenaline isn't really surging through your body, unless you wait for a life guard to turn their backs so you can disregard the rules and bomb into the pool.

Keen BMX-er Ryan Taylor set out to change that, avoiding staff at a popular Black Country leisure centre so he could ride his bike off a diving board.

Walsall Gala Baths, by the looks of it, is an uneventful, calm place, but that all changed as Brummie Ryan ran through the centre, making his may up the 7.5 meter diving board and bunny hopping into the water below.

Councillor Ian Shires, Portfolio Holder for Community, Leisure and Culture, told Birmingham Mail: "Clearly the actions of this young man were foolhardy; as well as injuring himself he could easily have injured staff members or customers who had actually paid to use the baths.

"His actions were also extremely selfish as, on both occasions, customers were disrupted from their enjoyment of their swim as the pool had to be evacuated for their safety.

"Staff responded appropriately and promptly to activate the alarm and clear the pool to prevent any risk to the public."
