Chimp attack victim Charla Nash comes on Oprah showNovember 13th, 2009 - 3:13 am ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
Chicago, Nov 12 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Connecticut inhabitant Charla Nash who was attacked by a chimpanzee and is now severely disfigured has finally opened up and revealed her injuries on national television, in Oprah Winfrey’s show.
Charla Nash allowed Oprah Winfrey to take off her hat and veil and reveal her severely disfigured face to the world. She was a guest on Wednesday’s show. The attack happened in mid-February and has severely affected Charla Nash as now she is without her hands, nose, lips and sight. “I don’t ask a whole lot about my injuries… I know that I have my forehead,” she said. She now drinks her meals “with a straw through a small hole where her mouth used to be.”
Nash’s family has filed a whooping $50 million lawsuit against Sandra Herold, her friend and former employer, who asked Charla Nash to help lure the huge 200-pound pet chimpanzee called as Travis, back into her Stamford, Conn. home on Feb. 16. Then the chimpanzee apparently attacked Charla Nash and in a brutal 12-minute attack, completely mauled her and even started eating her.
Herold in panic, placed a horrifying 911 call in which she asked the cops to come to her house on the double as her chimpanzee was eating Nash. Nash revealed on the show that she had repeatedly asked Herold to get rid of her exotic pet as he could be dangerous some day. However now she is positive and not looking back at all.
