Model’s Struggle After Brutal Acid Attack

Katie Piper was beaten and raped by her jealous boyfriend at a London hotel in March 2008.

Steroid-fuelled Daniel Lynch then arranged for another man to throw sulphuric acid in her face as she walked along Golders Green High Street.

The corrosive liquid burned through all four layers of the skin on the 26-year-old’s face and neck.

She was left blind in one eye, unable to eat from the damage to her throat, and in need of over 30 corrective operations to repair the damage.

Lynch, a martial arts fanatic, was jailed for life for rape and arranging the attack on Ms Piper, whom he met on Facebook.

His accomplice Stefan Sylvestre also received a life sentence.

Surgeons at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, led by Dr Mohammad Jawad, had to remove all of Ms Piper’s skin that had come into contact with the acid.

  1. Unfortunatly Katie is not the first victim to be attacked by acid, and is unlikely to be the last. No one deserves to go through such torture. Please support the Acid Survivors Trust International in it’s campaign to bring acid violence to an end. Acid violence must stop!
