A Japanese Lady, reported to be in her twenties, has shared chilling photographs of herself after she suffered an extreme case of domestic abuse at the hands of her grandfather.
The images show how her weight dropped to just 2 stone 6 pounds after being starved by her grandfather.
The Survivor, identified simply as Wild Cabbage on Twitter, took the shocking images in front of a mirror when she was living with her grandfather 10 years ago.
According to her, she was banned from eating. She revealed how her grandfather would “kick her in the belly” if he caught her secretly having food.
She claims she was told by medics – when she was finally able to get some help – that she was just 10 minutes from death. She says she is now sharing them to urge domestic violence victims to “ask for help before it’s too late”.
She has shared more recent photos that show she has now recovered and back to full health.
