After sustaining multiple injuries from a near-fatal car crash, Blood, Sweat and Heels alum Melyssa Ford is updating fans on her condition. The former model took to Instagram to share a heartfelt post that described the nightmarish after-effects of her accident, and thanked followers for their love and support in the weeks since the harrowing incident took place.
In the July 30 post, Melyssa wrote in part: "Just over 4 weeks ago I was involved in a near fatal car crash. I have struggled to remember a lot of what happened during the course of my recovery. Due to my skull fracture and concussion, there are parts I may never remember. What I do know now, after seeing photos and hearing the accounts from people that came to my rescue before the [EMTs], is that some incredible human beings stopped to pull me from the wreckage of my Jeep, risking their lives not knowing if the car was at risk of catching fire."
She later added: "Just days before, I had been having a moment where I feared for humanity. Where it seemed we were more interested in capturing a moment rather than helping a soul in need. My fears were put to rest, by the quick thinking and compassionate actions of the Good Samaritans that helped me, the fast acting EMT workers and trauma staff and Huntington Memorial hospital and by the overwhelming outpouring of support that I’ve received from people all over the world." In short, Melyssa said: "My gratitude is beyond measure."
