Zanzibar Acid Attack Jewish Victim Leaves Hospital

JewishPress Logo

One of the two British-Jewish girls severely burned in an acid attack while on a volunteer trip in Zanzibar has been released from the London hospital where she was staying, and returned home to her family to recover.

Though Kirstie Trup was discharged from the hospital on Sunday, her fellow victim and friend, Katie Gee, is still hospitalized and waiting to undergo surgery to treat burns that affected 80 percent of her right arm and 50 percent of her torso.

The Zanzibar acid attack victims, both 18, were volunteering at a school in the Zanzibar region of Tanzania when they were splashed with acid by men on a motorbike. According to Trup’s father, Marc the girls are “struggling to come to terms” with their injuries. “The enormity of their ordeal is having a devastating effect on them, as is the extent of the injuries,” Marc Trup said, according to The Algemeiner.
