Acid Attack Victim Bethany Storro Speaks About Experience (VIDEO)

Bethany Storro spoke to the media for the first time since the acid attack on her face earlier this week that resulted in serious skin damage.

"Hey pretty girl, do you want to drink this?" an unidentified woman said seconds before splattering a cup of acid on the 28-year-old's face in Vancouver, Wash.

Storro told reporters, "Once it hit me, I could hear it bubbling and sizzling in my skin. It was the most painful thing. My heart stopped, I almost passed out."

Storro said she doesn't normally wear sunglasses, but amazingly bought sunglasses just 20 minutes before the attack, saving her eyes from damage.
