Cape Town - A mom of two is fighting for her life in hospital after she was nearly beaten to death with a spade by an attacker who is known to her.
Chevonne Opperman, 25, had to be carried on a bed sheet to the ambulance “as her body was totally crushed”, neighbours say.
Emergency services were called to Batha Street in Leiden, Delft, on Sunday afternoon by frantic neighbours who said Chevonne had been nearly beaten to death with a spade.
Witnesses described in horror how the young mom’s hip and leg were a bloody pulp after the attack.
Paramedics didn’t use a stretcher, but a bed sheet to get her into the ambulance, it is believed due to the severity of her injuries.
