Ashley Judd shares harrowing details from accident in Congo
Jude wrote, “Without the Congo’s brothers and sisters, my internal bleeding would have killed me, and I would have lost my leg.” “I wake up crying in gratitude, deeply moved by each person who contributed to giving some life and saluting the soul during my grueling 55-hour odyssey.”
Describing his leg as a “gross misspen” by breaking it in four places, he went on to thank those who helped calm his injury and provide him with protection.
He said, “Dimmerci (” Thank God “) sat on the floor of the rain forest floor for 5 hours without thinking, without blinking an eyelid. “Papa Jean: It took 5 hours, but finally he found me, on wretched and wooded ground, and calmly assessed my broken leg. He told me what he had to do. I stick a little. I did it on Maud. Attacked. And Papa. ” Jean began to reattach and adjust my broken bones with certainty, as if I could be moved to a position while I screamed and writhed. ”
He also thanked the two men who had meticulously managed me as the six swinging men who had roamed the rough terrain leading me for 3 hours, “until finally two men escorted him to safety. And left the women who saw him.
“Didier drove a motorbike. I turned backwards, facing my backward on his back. When I would start slipping, to pass, he would let me lean on him to reset my position. Will call for, ”she wrote. “Maradona was riding in the backseat of the motorbike, I faced him. He put his broken leg under the heel and I held the top part shattering with both of my hands together. Simultaneously irregular, ruthless and push-on punch We did this for 6 hours. In the rainy season there is dirt in the streets which gets closed in the rainy season. ”
Jude told journalist Nick Christophe that she was in the Congo with her partner over the weekend, which has a research camp in the area, focused on efforts to protect endangered bonbos. She said they often visit the Congo – about twice a year, usually for six weeks a month.
The accident occurred one morning before he and some researchers were making their way through a rain forest in the dark.
