CLEVELAND, Ohio - The Stamford woman who was attacked by a chimpanzee made her first public appearance Wednesday on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and revealed her face.
Charla Nash talked to Winfrey at the Cleveland Clinic, where she is being treated. In February, a 200-pound chimpanzee belonging to Nash's employer attacked her, ripping off her hands, nose, lips and eyelids.
Nash says she no longer has eyes, she cannot breathe through her nose and eats everything through a straw. But she says she isn't in pain and doesn't want to dwell on the past.
Nash says she agreed to the interview to warn people about the dangers exotic animals pose.
