She suffered immense tissue damage in the accident.

“I wake up weeping in gratitude, deeply moved by each person who contributed something life-giving and spirit-salving during my grueling 55-hour odyssey,” Judd said.


The celebrity actress was at the Bonobo research camp in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, spent five hours after her injury on the ground in the rainforest and praised those to help her to get medical attention as she was screaming in pain.

She will need  surgery where  rods are attached to the bone with pins or screws.
