Injuries sustained after pool at LA Fitness Erdington collapses

Posted in: Public Liability 

Four people have sustained injuries after the pool’s ceiling at the LA Fitness Centre in Erdington collapsed.  The incident happened yesterday morning (Sunday) at 09:30 BST, resulting in around 50 people being evacuated from the centre.

  • LA Fitness was founded in 1990
  • It was voted ‘UK’s no.1 health and fitness brand’ in 2011
  • It now has around 80 clubs nationwide
  • It now has around 200,000 members 
  • Most clubs hold around 40 free classes a week

After the plasterboard ceiling gave way above the Birmingham swimming pool, four people – who had been in the pool at the time – sustained minor injuries. West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the fitness centre at around 09:55, alongside an ambulance, a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic officer and the trust’s hazardous area response team.  

Swimmers were extremely lucky considering size of the collapsed ceiling

West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman, John Hawker, said: “Three women and a man, all aged between 30 and 60, received emergency treatment at the scene by ambulance crews, including a patient who suffered a laceration to their head”.  

However, despite it being a serious incident, no one had to be taken to hospital as a result.  John Hawker continued by saying that swimmers were very lucky not to have been more seriously injured considering the size of the collapsed ceiling.
