Church bell-ringer gets tangled in ropes

10 posts in this topic

Helen Springthorpe was knocked unconscious in the tower of St Nicholas Church, Bathampton, near Bath, Somerset on Monday night.

Authorities said the campanologist, who had only been in the job for three months, was "thrown around the belfry" after tripping and becoming "entangled in a bell ringing rope".

I guess any job has its dangers, glad he didn't get seriously hurt.

Makes me think of those Terry Gilliam cartoons on Monty Python.
