BRITISH holiday worker says she is glad to be alive after her leg was sucked on to the propeller of a speedboat.
Former nursery nurse Suzanne Cassidy, 26, suffered horrific injuries during a day out to mark a friend’s birthday.
She had finished her turn being towed on an inflatable ring when she was struck as the boat’s engine was fired up again.
Miss Cassidy, of Cambuslang, Lanarkshire, was dragged on to the propeller blades, which inflicted deep cuts to her right leg and snapped a bone.
The bar worker grabbed the side of the craft and twisted around to try to avoid the the razor-sharp blades as they hacked into her leg.
She was hauled on board by colleagues from The Highlander pub in the resort of San Antonio on the Spanish holiday island of Ibiza and taken to the Can Misses Hospital.
In bed after more than four hours of emergency surgery, Miss Cassidy, who had arrived in Ibiza in April, said yesterday: “I’m just glad to be alive.
I really thought I was going to die but my friends pulled me back.

“I knew immediately the danger I was in when I felt my leg being sucked towards the propellers by the force of the engine. Somehow, I found the strength in my upper body to twist myself around and away from danger.
“I really thought I was going to die but my friends pulled me back.
“I could feel the throbbing in my leg where it was broken but I didn’t want to look at it so I only found out the bone had been sticking out of my leg after I came to after the operation.”
Police in San Antonio are investigating the captain of the boat to find out why, in the accident on Sunday, he started the engine before Miss Cassidy was clear.
