The argument of whether or not golf is a sport rages on around the world, but there are few sports that a spin-off of the original can cause as severe an injury as what happened to Dzung Tran.
Traveling aboard the Carnival Splendor, Tran was enjoying a round of mini golf on the ship’s deck when everything went horribly wrong. Kevin Casey at Golfweek.com pieced together the reports.
As TMZ reports, a Carnival cruise passenger is suing the cruise line after suffering a terrifying experience last summer.
Dzung Tran was playing mini-golf aboard the Carnival Splendor when he apparently tripped over a loose border on the course. The fall would result in numerous injuries, none more bone-chilling though than this: Tran tore a major artery in an upper arm after BEING IMPALED BY A GOLF CLUB.
Here are photos of what that impaling did. Seriously, only look if you have a strong stomach. Gruesome wasn’t an exaggeration.
Tran is suing Carnival after acquiring this injury, claiming the mini-golf course was poorly maintained and not built to code.
Here’s a video of what the Splendor’s course looks like.
