UK lifeguard traps himself while spying on n*ked woman in changing room

May 6, 2011 - London

A UK lifeguard, who trapped himself while spying on a nude woman in a leisure centre, had to be rescued by the fire brigade.

According to The Mirror, Steven Dickson, 19, was ogling at the woman from underneath a cubicle partition before she spotted him and screamed, the Daily Mail reported.

Dickson allegedly panicked when the woman screamed, and when he tried to flee he became stuck under the divider.

He allegedly panicked so much that when firefighters came to his aid they feared the tearful employee would suffer a Heart attack.

The victim told Carlisle Crown Court that she had been for a swim at Cockermouth Leisure Centre in Cumbria, when the incident happened on October 7 and had been deeply "shocked" at her discovery.

Centre manager Aimee Threapleton said that Dickson, who had worked at the complex for two years, told her he had made a dreadful mistake and had only had a look at the woman.

But the defendant, from Maryport, Cumbria, insisted to the jury that he was unaware anyone was in the changing particle.

He claims he was attempting to unlock a door that he thought someone had locked as a prank and would never have looked if he knew someone was in the cubicle.

The teenager denies voyeurism for the purpose of self-gratification.

The trial continues.
