The woman and man then fled.

Morales’ mother, Lee Ann Morales, told CBS3, “She will live, but she will have permanent damage.

‘She’ll have to have a new face. I’m just saying, she’ll never have the face she was born with, and they said that’s the hardest thing when she can look in the mirror and see another face back at her.”

She was in too much pain to identify herself when she arrived at the hospital, and was on Jane Doe’s list for two days before her family could see her.

According to a GoFundMe set up to help pay for medical treatment, Morales will remain in the hospital for another three months before going to a rehab center.

Her mother added: “I’m sad, I’m broken, I’m angry, so angry,” she added. “I just want to know who did this… Who could do it?”
