A man wearing an inflatable sumo wrestler suit knocked himself out during an event in Gloucestershire with his workmates.
The 40-year-old, from Southampton, reportedly bounced off a colleague, fell backwards and landed on his back and head. He was knocked unconscious for a short period before eventually coming round.
West Midlands Ambulance Service arrived at Kemerton Park, near Tewkesbury, shortly after the incident occurred at 6pm on Monday 19 May.
‘Not fully alert’
Medics said the man was messing around with a workmate who was also wearing a blow-up sumo outfit.
The contact with the ground as he was launched backwards was enough to knock him out. He was immobilised and airlifted to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital for further assessment and treatment as a precaution as he was still not fully alert after regaining consciousness.
He was complaining of pain in his nose, left shoulder and left leg.
