Charla Nash Released from Rehab (Injury Photos, Pictures)
Charla Nash, the woman who was attacked and horribly difigured by her friend’s chimpanzee, has been released from rehab. The brother of a Connecticut chimp victim Charla Nash has revealed that his sister, who was mauled and horribly disfigured by a 200-pound chimpanzee, has been discharged from the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio and has moved to the Boston area.
Nash who turned 56 Tuesday revealed “the remnants of her missing eyes, nose and lips,” as ABC News described it.
Nash told Oprah that she feels no pain but that she tries not to touch her face so as to avoid knowing the full extent of her injuries.
“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,” ABC added.
Nash lost both her hands in the attack, as well as her nose, an eyelid, and lips. Doctors removed her eyes due to an infection, and only recently did she learn she’ll no longer be able to see.
