JASMINE: Are you all right now?
HARRY: Hmm. so so - some days are better than others. I'm still having occasional flashbacks.
JASMINE: What happened?
HARRY: Well. I was doing my normal Thursday workout on the treadmill. I started with a gentle jog for ten minutes or so, then I decided to run fast for ten minutes. So I pressed the increase button.
JASMINE: Had you been on that machine before?
HARRY: Not that one, but one very like it. so I was quite familiar with the controls, I mean, I knew how it worked.
JASMINE: So, then what happened?
HARRY: Well. nothing happened for a few seconds, then the belt suddenly speeded up. I tried to slow it down, but nothing happened. When I tried pressing the automatic slow-down button, it was like I was putting my foot on a car accelerator.
JASMINE: That must have been terrifying. What did you do?
HARRY: I looked round for help, thought maybe someone could switch the electricity off. It would have been a very sudden jolt, but better than not stopping at all. But there was no one else in the room. In the end, all I could do was jump off and keep my fingers cossed.
JASMINE: And that's how you broke your leg? Are you going to do anything about it?
HARRY: I'm not sure yet. I'm considering taking the company that runs the gym to court - that's what my solicitor suggests, but I'm in two minds about it.

He sometimes relives the experience.
He has recovered completely.
What is Harry planning to do in relation to the incident?
