Sheyla Hershey, the local woman whose very odd and sad obsession with getting huge breast implants has been chronicled widely, is in a coma after a suicide attempt, a British tabloid is reporting.
But The Sun's story is alarmingly vague and contains no details on where the incident allegedly happened.
"Model's Pills OD After Boob Op" is the headline, and it says Hershey took an overdose of pills "after doctors removed her implants."
"Husband Derek said: 'Doctors don't know when she'll wake. I just pray she gets out of it,'" the paper said.
It says Hershey was due to have KKK-size implants "today." Foreign papers also have stories, but we can't tell if they're just repeating what the Sun is reporting.
If true, this whole saga just keeps getting more sad with each turn.
