A freak accident left a Delaware woman with portions of her face “falling off” after taking a nasty spill while on a jog with her dog.
Shelley Puchalsky, 39, tripped over the Shih Tzu, Chloe, and plummeted face forward on a trail, suffering multiple major lacerations to her nose and forehead.
Although it happened in September 2019, complications from the hellish wound have been a living, recurring nightmare for Puchalsky, who now lives in St. Pete Beach, Florida, for insurance reasons.
“I had to get  stitches, and they became infected and wouldn’t heal. I went to a doctor who said he could help me, so he did a skin graft over my nose and restitched my forehead,” Puchalsky told Kennedy News and Media.
