The moment a British tourist was potentially paralysed in a water park accident was filmed by horrified friends.
David Briffaut, 23, is now in intensive care in hospital in Alicante, Spain, with mum Lorraine, 55, by his side.
He is undergoing emergency treatment after breaking two vertebrae in his neck and suffering a spinal cord injury after he was pulled semi-conscious from the water at the aqua park.
The freak accident on the Splash slide at Aqualandia is likely to leave David paralysed from the chest down .
His family has chosen to release to the press footage leading up to the accident after friends filmed the talented golfer use the slide.
The footage shows the happy-looking holidaymaker speeding down the slide - just seconds from tragedy.
