A LONDON woman is recovering after her breast implant was ruptured during a game of paintball - the first time such an injury is believed to have occurred in Britain.
The woman's bizarre injury, suffered last weekend, caused UK Paintball - which operates more than 50 facilities throughout the UK - to insist that women with breast enhancements now wear extra chest protection, the Croydon Guardian reported.
And the company's standard indemnity form now points out to customers that paintballs - capsules of dye fired from gas-powered guns in the game - can damage breast implants.
The 26-year-old was playing paintball at Whyteleafe, south London, when the incident took place.
A UK Paintball spokesman told the newspaper, "Part of the fun of paintball is that it hurts a bit when you get shot but in all the years we've been going we've never seen an incident like this.
"The incident has been a real wakeup call and nobody should ever feel worried for their safety during a game of paintball.
"But it's worth remembering that having bigger breasts will make you an easier target for your enemies."LINK
