Sheyla Hershey's massive breast implants nearly killed her in 2010 but she must be happy she had them put back in last year. The “model” was involved in a post-Super Bowl crash and they saved her life.
Hershey wasn't wearing her seat belt at the time of the crash, but she was lucky she had 38KKK implants, because they acted like “airbags,” minimizing the impact on the rest of her body, she tells the Mirror.
In other words, she could have been killed in the crash (or so she says) and she owes her life to her massive implants.
“A woman with the world’s largest breast implants walked away from a horror crash unscathed claiming her huge [breasts] saved her life,” Mirror reports.
“Sheyla Hershey’s massive 38KKK breasts had an airbag effect, protecting the rest of her body from injury in the smash,” the publication says.
The accident seems to have been caused by Hershey herself, since she was arrested for DUI immediately after it occurred.
“The Guinness World Record [holder] was charged with driving while intoxicated after she ploughed into a tree on the way back to her home in Houston, Texas, from a Super Bowl party on Sunday night,” Mirror says.
“The 31-year-old wasn’t wearing a seatbelt when her Ford Mustang spun around to hit another tree on the opposite side of the road,” adds the same media outlet.
If the name Sheyla Hershey rings a bell, it's because she's made international headlines before.
As a holder of the Guinness World Record title of the woman with world's largest breasts, her case caused quite a ruckus when it emerged that she was lying on a hospital bed, dying from an infection that had developed into her breasts.
At the time, as we also informed you, she was refusing to have the implants removed.
She eventually did but it sent her on a downward spiral.
Depressed, she had at least a couple of suicide attempts, after which she reconciled with the idea, but only because she was determined to make a full recovery so she could have them put back in again.
In November last year, she was getting ready to go under the knife once more for another augmentation.
