A BRIT has won a payout after she was thrown from a camel and dragged along a beach in Spain’s Canary Islands.

Gran Karen Saccone, 61, landed head first, then was stamped on and kicked by the panicky half-ton beast in front.

She was also pulled along the ground on the 2017 Fuerteventura break.

Karen, from Derby, had a fractured pelvis, broken ribs, collapsed lung and head and facial injuries.

The residential child carer needed four months off work. Insurers have now admitted liability.

Karen said she still continues to suffer as a result of her injuries over two years on and underwent knee surgery in May.

Mum-of-one Karen, of Cavendish, Derby, said: “It was like a nightmare.

“What was a lovely break turned into a holiday from hell.”

“Everything happened in such a blur. I had literally just bought the camel ride and sat on the chair when the camel went to stand up.


“During the process of doing so it threw the chair forward and I couldn’t stop myself from falling.

“The camel in front trampled me but because my left leg was stuck, the other camel shot off and started dragging me across the beach for what felt like several minutes.

“I was being dragged around the beach and the next thing I knew was that the camel, and another being held by the owner, started kicking and stamping on me.
