…can you imagine how disappointing it would be to meet your maker courtesy of a giant inflatable?
‘An artist who created an inflatable sculpture that burst free from its moorings killing two people has been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter.
The 2,500sq m Dreamspace artwork was thrown 100ft into the air by a freak gust of wind. Elizabeth Collings, 68, and Claire Furmedge, 38, died in the tragedy at the Riverside Park, Chester-le-Street, on 23 July. Several others were hurt.’
