A WOMAN has warned against rope swings after she was left in excruciating pain and covered in blood after jumping off a cliff while riding one.
She retold the story on TikTok, warning other women specifically.
** WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT AHEAD **
Ivylis Rivera shared a video where she showed a picture of her hanging from a tree before getting on a rope swing and jumping into the lake underneath her.
“I’m paddleboarding with my brothers and we see a rope swing and they want to do it,” she said at the beginning of her story.
“I had never done it so I’m like ‘Okay, sure.’ It’s like what’s the worst that could happen?
“Look at me, naive and happy. Little did I know. I didn’t know that you weren’t supposed to monkey grip the freakin’ rope so the rope is flossing up my butt.
“To make matter worse, when I landed in the water, I didn’t let go of the rope.
“Literally, at this moment – with legs up in the air and the rope in between me – I was in the most excruciating pain ever. I could barely swim back, I get out of the water and I’m bleeding.”
Rivera then revealed she went to the hospital because she had no idea the extent of her injuries.
“I find out that I got rope burn so bad from flossing my butt and woman part – that it literally gave me a new hole,” she painfully revealed.
“I had to get stitches, a tetanus shot, and antibiotics. My brothers now roast me, you will never catch me on a rope swing.”
The TikTok star had to draw a diagram of her injuries and many were traumatized from it.
One person wrote: “That’s the definition of a freak accident. I’m never going rope swinging again.”
A second person shared: “This is pure horror! I’m so so sorry this happened to you, I can’t imagine the pain you went through.”
And a third commented: “Girl, I’ve been on a rope swing so many times … but I will never be doing that again because of this.”
