ABC – Channel 13 – Dr. Franklin Rose to Rebuild Nose for Victim of Vicious Attack
‘I don’t have a nose:’ Woman accused of biting off victim’s nose and swallowing it
Jessica Collins, 41, is charged with assault-bodily injury-Collins allegedly bit off a large piece of the victim’s nose and swallowed it.
“I didn’t have time to react, to push her away,” says the victim. “I think I was trying to fight back, but I couldn’t. All I could remember was the taste of blood in my mouth.”
She says she passed out several times and didn’t realize her nose was injured until she was in the ambulance.
“I started calling my husband when I was in the ambulance,” the victim said. “I was screaming, like, ‘I don’t have a nose. I’m 28 years old and I don’t have a nose anymore.'”
