Double Trouble in Egypt: British Holidaymaker in Holiday Accident & Illness Nightmare
Imagine you’re on a much-anticipated holiday, relishing the sun and sea, when suddenly, an accident strikes, and illness follows. This double whammy recently turned a dream holiday into a nightmare for a British holiday goer and his family members.
A nasty bump turns a holiday bad
Picture yourself in Egypt, at the beautiful Jaz Makadi Aquaviva Hotel in Hurghada. This five-star resort promised relaxation, but for Anthony Baker, it turned into a holiday from hell.
The incident occurred on a water slide. Unfortunately, the slide was unsupervised at the time, and Anthony, a 56-year-old British tourist, dislocated his shoulder when the inflatable boat he was in bumped violently over a ride’s bump.
The swimming pool appeared largely unsupervised, and it took two minutes before hotel staff arrived at the accident scene. Sharon, Anthony’s sister, had to jump into the water to rescue her injured brother because there were no lifeguards around.

A Holiday That Went From Bad to Worse
The Bakers subsequently extended their holiday by a week to compensate for the lost time while Anthony was in the hospital. Yet, their ordeal was far from over. At the neighbouring Jaz Makadi Saraya Hotel, Anthony and his 14 year-old nephew, Corbin, fell seriously ill with a severe gastric illness. Anthony experienced stomach cramps and severe diarrhoea, requiring hospitalisation for six days.
Upon returning to the UK, Anthony’s health took a turn for the worse. He collapsed at his home in Dorchester, Dorset, and was immediately rushed to the hospital. Doctors discovered stomach inflammation and internal bleeding, necessitating blood transfusions and antibiotics.
The Bakers believe that Anthony was given the wrong medication in Egypt, leading to his gastritis. This painful ordeal has prompted them to take legal action against TUI, seeking compensation for their horrible holiday experience.
