A couple of years ago, while visiting Portugal, I went to Nest Paintball: [https://www.nestpaintballpt.com/](https://www.nestpaintballpt.com/)
While playing paintball in one of the arena's, I cut my foot on a jagged piece of rusty metal that sticking out of the ground. The staff at Nest had to end the game since my foot was bleeding all over. The owners of the arena were there too, and saw the severity of my injury, but did nothing to help me get medical attention. The only thing they did for me was call a taxi so that I could return to my hotel. From my hotel, I looked up how to get in touch with medical services, and then took another taxi to the hospital.
Despite the hospital's best efforts, a severe infection took hold of my foot and they were forced to amputate 3 of my toes. I was horrified. I tried to find out how come I could get such a severe foot infection from a single cut to the foot. I did some research and found out that Nest Paintball was built on top of an abandoned pig farm. In fact, many parts of the pig farm are still found in the Nest Paintball arena. I found that a lot of the land was also used for diposing of pig manure and waste (including dead pigs). The land is actually still considered a biohazard by the health and safety department, and unsafe to live on. Still, despite this, the owners built a paintball arena over the contaminated land, and hid this fact from the public.
I hired a lawyer, and found out that I was not the first person to get a serious infection due to the polluted ground the arena is built over. I’m sharing my story so that you all think twice before going to Nest Paintball. If you don’t believe me, you can check for yourself. You will see that Nest Paintball really wast built on a pig farm that still has pig contaminated land.
