Woman who lost face in chimp attack to get $4 million: reports

http://news.yahoo.co...-180700143.html

Reuters6 hrs ago

(Reuters) - A woman who underwent a full face transplant after being mauled by a chimpanzee will receive about $4 million from the estate of the animal's owner, who has since died, according to media reports on Thursday.

Charla Nash was attacked in February 2009, when her friend's 200-pound chimpanzee went on a rampage and ripped off her nose, lips, eyes and hands.

The chimp was shot and killed by a police officer.

Nash's brother, Michael, filed a lawsuit on his sister's behalf, seeking $50 million from the estate of the chimp's owner, Sandra Herold, who died in 2010.

Brenden Leydon, an attorney for Herold's estate, said the case was settled, according to an article published online by the Connecticut Post. He did not immediately respond to requests for confirmation or details.

According to documents obtained by the Associated Press, Nash will receive $4 million from the estate.

Nash and Herold had been longtime friends, and Nash had gone to Herold's home in Stamford, Connecticut, to help get the chimp back in its cage.

An attorney for Nash also could not be reached for comment.

Glad to see they stopped monkeying around and really put their noses down to stop the crap flinging and take on this gorilla-sized case.

Day'am. And they should serve that evil chimp empty bananas for the rest of its life. Or we could always outlaw having a pet chimp. What kind of person wants a pet chimp anyway. Just plain stupid.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

Kesler was lucky to score 20 this year since the injury to Morrison allowed him to do so.

I doubt Kesler would ever break 15 goals in his career again.

All the money in the world won't bring her face back. All the suffering for the rest of the life for $4 million? Not worth it. Plus the lawyers probably get 1/2 of the money anyways.

Curious as to the back story. They were friends and the chimps owner had some assets. I wonder how much the chimps owner helped out her friend before her death.

I would imagine the fact that she went there to help put the animal back in the cage came into play? I mean, you do take a risk in doing so and I'll bet that factored in.

Horrible...wild animals as pets are still wild animals first and foremost. Never forget the time I looked to see my sister in law holding my daughter INSIDE a barricade saying "do not feed" and had her hand feeding monkeys at the zoo. My heart sank and I it was a total "what the hell are you thinking??" conversation.

The chimp in question is named Travis, and totally unstable, too. These people are ridiculous.

Numerous incidents of violence. The owner apparently slept with the chimp in her bed (???). Oh dear.

“When facism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”-Sinclair Lewis

A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."-Albert Einstein

It is ridiculous....play with fire and you get burned. I'm no less sympathetic for this woman who lost her face...what a horrible ordeal. But you make choices in life and, in this case, it's not like a chimp randomly attacked a woman....she placed herself in a situation that she likely wasn't trained for. I have trouble getting my 2 lb rabbit back in her cage for crying out loud...can't imagine what this must have been like. These people should have considered this scenario prior to getting a "pet" like this.

Well, at least its better than nothing. She could always just wear a synthetic mask when going out and spend some of that cash.
