*Churchgoers in Anderson County, S. C. saw something they will never be able to un-see on February 6. They witnessed Kaylee Muthart, 20, use her bare hands to actually tear her eyeballs out.
People say that the woman was hallucinating at the time of the incident. She is healing now, but she will be blind for life.
According to authorities, Muthart was beside herself.
“It took two or three of our guys and two EMTs” to subdue her enough that she could start receiving medical assistance, Sheriff Chad McBride of the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office said.
Now her family is using their misfortune to warn others about the risks involved in illegal drug use. According to Katy Tompkins, Muthart’s mother, it was hard to hear the diagnosis that her daughter will never see again.
“That was a struggle, I can’t even explain that feeling when I found out, it was horrifying. Complete terror,” Tompkins told People. “I was thankful she was alive, but I knew something was wrong with her.”
Tompkins is speaking out in the video below, warning people about the drugs they take, and the people they hang around with who do drugs.
Doctors believe Muthart may have used methamphetamine laced with another substance which caused her to hallucinate.
Tompkins said Muthart believed “the world was upside down” and she “heard voices that told her to sacrifice her eyes in order to make it to heaven.”
