The floor of a Weight Watchers clinic in Växjö in south central Sweden collapsed on Wednesday night beneath a group of about 20 participants in the weight-loss programme.
The Weight Watchers participants had gathered in the group’s facilities to see how much weight they had lost.
As it turned out, however, people’s weight was not the only thing to fall.
“We suddenly heard a huge thud; we almost thought it was an earthquake and everything flew up in the air. The floor collapsed in one corner of the room and along the walls,” one of the participants told the Smålandsposten newspaper.
Then floor then started to give way in other parts of the room. Shortly thereafter, the smell of sewage began to waft up into the room.
"We're going to have to find a replacement premises," Weight Watchers consultant Therese Levin told the newspaper.
But the Weight Watchers didn’t let the damaged floor stop the evening's weigh-in........
I know that must have been scary, but wouldn't you have loved to seen some of the looks on those peoples face? :smilielol5:
Thanks God no one was hurt.
