Swinger wins payout for fall in dark at adult party

  • Witnesses said guide lights on stairs were turned off and only candles lit the way

A man has won 12,565 euros in compensation for falling down some stairs during a partner-swapping party at an adult-only hotel in Malaga. According to the man's account, he and his wife had just arrived at the venue and he either slipped or fell in the “poorly-lit” room. His right leg was fractured in the accident and he had to be operated on.

The insurers representing the organisers said in their court submission that the venue was well lit and that the man had slipped after getting out of a swimming pool after a few drinks. The organisers themselves went further and said the couple had been in the club “a couple of hours” and knew their way round very well.

The judge found in favour of the man after witnesses said guide lights on stairs were turned off and only candles lit the way.
