Footage seems to show him lying on a board as directed.

But Aqualandia said: “The ride is completely safe. Not following the rules was the reason of the accident.”

Yet there are 300-plus complaints on TripAdvisor about injuries and prices.

Golf course green-keeper David, of South Benfleet, Essex, was celebrating the graduation of girlfriend Penny Bristow, 22, when he was hurt last week.

He is in intensive care in Spain, having had a tracheotomy, and he will need a plate in his neck.
His uncle, Mark Pooley, said: “We want to know why this has happened.

“David’s life is never going to be the same again.”

 David's childhood sweetheart Penny, 22, took to Facebook to post: 'I love you so much, we will get through this'
