Woman Hanging Onto Life By A Thread, Tortured For Hours - Saved By Her Grandmother's Instincts

Avoiding family and only communicating with brief text messages, the signs were familiar to Fawn who worked with victims of domestic violence and sex trafficking. Still, she was shocked to find that her daughter, Prosper Ortega, would become a victim of domestic violence.

According to Independent Journal Review, one day Fawn couldn’t ignore her instincts and barged into her daughter’s house only to find her daughter severely beaten and on the brink of death.

Ortega’s husband, Aaron Uchitel, is accused of assaulting his wife in front of their infant son and drugging her drinks so that she would be too weak to leave him. The horrifying photos Fawn posted on social media to raise awareness about domestic violence were truly shocking.

Fawn said that her daughter’s ribs were broken and breasts were beaten, and that Uchitel allegedly tried to blind her and make her deaf so she couldn’t see or hear her baby, the Independent Journal Review reports. Ortega tried to escape through a window, but she was caught, tied to a bed and had her hair cut off. Uchitel is also accused of trying to pull out Ortega’s teeth and stabbing her.

Ortega reportedly stayed with Uchitel, who was undergoing anger management classes, because he threatened to leave and take their son. He was charged with several counts, including domestic violence and false imprisonment.
