Bergen described that night as follows: “My two eyes are gone. I am not aware of anything because I was drunk. I only hear screams.

At one point they say, 'Take it to the water'. Look at the fate that the waters are cut off. The water flows like a rope.

They ripped off my clothes and wrapped me around me. At that moment, it was so dark everywhere, I couldn't see anything and I couldn't open my eyes.”

Bergen"I remember that I operated her at least three times. Because in this type of burns, it takes months for the tissues to heal and mature.

We peeled Bergen's skin with the sanding method. Her right eye was protruding, her lids were not closing. I made an eye socket for the prosthesis to be added later.

Her nose wings were gone, there cartilage was put on. Skin was added to her face from her hips."
