Bethany Storro, Victim of Horrific Acid Attack, Speaks Out: Video
Update: September 16 - Bethany Storro has admitted the attack was self-inflicted
Bethany Storro Has Spoken Out Publicly About the Vicious Acid Attack Earlier This Week in Vancouver Washington
Bethany Storro was a pretty brunette who was celebrating a new job and a new start when she was approached by a total stranger who then threw a cup of acid in her face.
Storro, (before and after photo), said the woman said to her 'Hey pretty girl, do you want to drink this?' before throwing the acid in her face. Now she has described what it felt like the moment the liquid hit her skin:
"It was the most painful thing ever," she said from the hospital Thursday. "My heart stopped. It ripped through my clothing the instant it touched my shirt; I could feel it burning through my second layer of skin."
According to the New York Daily News, the only reason Storro is not blind, is because she bought herself a pair of sunglasses as a present to celebrate her new job.
The young woman did not know her attacker, who she can only describe as a black woman in her late 20s, who had her hair in a ponytail and was wearing khaki pants.
"I have never, ever seen this girl in my entire life," Storro said. "When I first saw her, she had this weirdness about her - like jealousy, rage."
Now the biggest question still remains, 'why did this happen?'
Did my attacker wake up in the morning and say I'm going to "carry some acid in a cup and throw it on the first person I see?" Storro asked.
She will always have scars from the attack.
