Remember that iconic moment in Dirty Dancing when Baby (Jennifer Grey) leaped into Johnny’s (Patrick Swayze) arms? Perfect execution, right? Well, here’s the story about a not-so-perfect attempt at the same lift.

Sharon Price, 52, and her fiance Andy Price, 51, from England, thought it would be a good idea to try to pull off that Johnny-and-Baby move, and let’s just say it didn’t go as planned.


According to the BBC, Sharon suffered head and back injuries and Andy was left with a concussion.

Take a look at their stellar moves:

Needless to say, they don’t have any plans on attempting that move ... ever ... again.

“I don’t think we’ll have that one at the wedding; I think we’ll go for a traditional slow one and I’ll let Andy choose,” Sharon said.

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).
