A woman found that her own eyeball outside a South Carolina church on Tuesday after the removal of the self, authorities said.
Rev. Terry Mitchell, a retired minister, assisted the woman and said: it turned out that she had intentionally hurt herself at the nearby track. He said the woman who was still young, and he fought against everyone who tried to help her, FOX Carolina reported.
“It lasted two or three of our boys and two Parents, I believe, to sort of subdue it enough for them to help,” Sheriff Chad McBride told the station.
After the woman was subdued, she was airlifted to a hospital and received medical treatment.
Authorities say that no charges will be filed, because no crime was committed. All the details about why the woman was injured is not published.
A member of the church Lee Harris told the Independent Post that members who watched the event unfold had been “traumatised” by the experience and were able to receive counseling at the church.
“We are a close-knit community and we will continue to help,” Harris said.
