The spectacular and embarrassing fall of a mother during a school field day it left her, and the onlookers, red in the face, but not from exercise.
the moment that Katie Hannaford, 36, from Basildon, Essex, England, she fell to her knees exposing her anatomy too much and looked at the crowd of young students and his parents was captured in a recent video, South West News Service reported.
Hannaford told SWNS that her 8-year-old daughter had forced her to participate in the relay on June 15.
The owner of the household items business also confessed that “she is not an athlete” and stated: “I knew it would be the last.”
In the footage, Hannaford is seen starting the race, then quickly falling behind before finally tripping and falling face first into the grass, causing her dress to ride up over her head to reveal her black thong.
She started out confident, though she told SWNS, “I knew it would be my last.”
“I just tripped over my own feet. I think my body was moving too fast for my legs! I’m so clumsy,” Hannaford insisted to SWNS.
“I was humiliating at the time, but it is what it is!” he continued. “I showed my underwear, which is obviously embarrassing, but you have to admit it.”
Fortunately, she was able to see the humor after an awkward situation.
“Looking back, it’s hilarious,” he declared. “Definitely the most fun I’ve ever had in my life!”
