This is the amusing moment a grandmother loses her balance and flips over the handlebars while riding on a seesaw.

Lisa Lloyd, 55, from, from Feltham, Middlesex, was on holiday in Corfu when the unfortunate incident occurred.

The holidaymaker had travelled to the Greek island with her husband David, 58, in May.

The couple decided to get their friend Paula, a 57-year-old betting shop assistant manager, to video them riding on a seesaw to show their four grandchildren when they got home.

However, Lisa suddenly lost her balance while sitting at the highest point of the seesaw and fell over the handles and onto the ground, landing on her back.

Despite the 55-year-old being left with a cut on her ear, she now finds the incident hilarious.

‘I turned for the camera and my husband is a bigger person, so I sort of lost my balance and fell forward over the bars,’ Lisa said.

She added: ‘I sort of just jumped off and my ear was bleeding. It left quite a gash but luckily it was not the face.’

It is a tradition for the couple to send a photograph of themselves on a slide or seesaw to their family when they are on holiday.

The tradition commenced a few years ago for their eldest grandchild, who is now nine years old.

So, when they spotted the seesaw in Corfu, Lisa, and her husband, who is a forklift driver, knew they had to jump on.

Lisa recalled: ‘Paula was only meant to take photo and ended up recording. Our grandkids are aged one, four, five and nine-years-old and they all found it hilarious.’

The grandmother said that her husband David ‘panicked at first’, but as soon as he saw she was not in pain, they laughed about it.

Lisa’s husband David, a forklift driver, was initially worried for his wife after she fell from the seesaw 

The couple left for Corfu on May 28, 2024, and stayed for 10 nights before returning to the UK on June 7.

Elsewhere on the trip, David and Lisa stayed by the beach and the pool. Lisa added: ‘We also hired a boat and quad bikes, but the seesaw was my undoing.’

It comes after a father-of-two hilariously crashed into bushes after climbing on top of a bin.

Matt Gentle, 40, tried to change the batteries on two security cameras outside of his home.

However, what should have been a simple task led to him crashing into bushes instead.

His slip-up was caught on a Ring doorbell camera which captured a video of him toppling from the top of a bin earlier this month.

The footage shows Matt, from Croydon in south London, pulling a wheelie bin from the end of his drive and placing it by a bush.

He attempted to clamber on top of the blue bin and used a nearby lamppost to help him balance.

The father-of-two swiftly lost his bearings and the bin tipped from under him – all while he continued to cling onto the pole.

He landed in the bush and the bin fell onto its side – as Matt got up, the lid opened up and rubbish spilled out onto the grass.

Matt, a car sprayer, said his wife and children have been enjoying the footage and added: ‘It was hilarious – I climbed onto the bin that can’t take my weight. I would have laughed so hard if I’d seen that.

‘I’m too heavy to be standing on stuff like that – but you never learn. I do things like that all the time. The kids love the video. My boy watches it all the time.’
