New face of chimpanzee attack victim revealed
New face of chimpanzee attack victim revealed after transplant operation
By The Associated Press

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) ' The new face of a Connecticut woman who was mauled by a chimpanzee two years ago has been revealed for the first time in photos showing a startling transformation.

The pictures of Charla Nash were first shown on NBC's "Today" show Thursday morning. Nash, who had a face transplant in May, didn't appear on the program because family members said she was too weak to do an interview. Photos were later released by Boston's Brigham and Women's Hospital, where the surgery was performed.

The 57-year-old Nash was attacked in Stamford in February 2009 by a friend's 200-pound chimpanzee, which ripped off her nose, lips, eyelids and hands. The attack left her blind.



Nash said in a statement that she's looking forward to doing things she once took for granted, including being able to smell, eat normally, speak clearly and kiss loved ones.
