Mum breaks both her ankles while practising Tik Tok dance challenge

A Mum has been left with two broken ankles after attempting a Tik Tok dance challenge.

Sapphire Charlesworth and her partner from County Durham were attempting the Oh Na Na Na challenge.

“We were just practising, and as I went to turn I slipped and heard ‘crack, crack’ and then I was in a heap on the floor,”.

“It hurt so so bad. I think my partner thought I was exaggerating.

“She had to pick me up and we were trying to wait to see if the pain wore off but then we had to phone an ambulance.”

She is now wearing a full cast on her left foot and a moon boot on the other, and has been told she might require an operation to mend the damage to her left ankle.

“To anyone thinking of trying it, I’d say approach with caution,” she said.

“It’s not as easy as it looks.”

She added that Naadjele has been nursing her as well as looking after her two children while she recovers.

She also wanted to thanks the NHS staff who took care of her during a period of such high pressures on the health system.

“I want to massively thank the NHS. Through all of this, they are keeping their spirits high,” she said.
