An Ecuadorian model was left badly injured after surviving a vicious attack by a group of women. A year later, she’s still receiving death threats on social media from Internet trolls.
Angie Silva was continually hit with fists, stilettos and handbags outside a nightclub in the city of Santiago de Guayaquil last year. Video captured the horrific incident as several onlookers watched and did nothing.
One man tried to intervene and was warned by the women not to get involved. The beat down lasted for several minutes until authorities arrived and the women fled, leaving Silva lying on the ground bleeding.
It’s unclear what caused the brawl, but the women were later jailed for their actions following a court case. Meanwhile, Silva had to undergo multiple reconstructive surgical procedures to repair the damage that left her face with a scar from forehead to chin.
Although her attackers are incarcerated and have served several months of their sentences, Silva still fears for her life.
“I have given screenshots of the threats to my lawyer, who will work with the authorities to investigate their source,” she said of the trolls, who may be associated with her attackers as retaliation for her pursuing criminal charges. “But it leaves me very worried.”
