A woman who was stabbed several times by her boyfriend in the back last week, has been released from hospital and is on the road to recovery.
Davia Michelle Hypolite, 19, told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) on Wednesday that she was discharged from hospital on Monday, and while she still have some slight pain, she is doing much better.
Hypolite was initially taken to Victoria Hospital after being stabbed four times in the back by her boyfriend, but was later transferred to Tapion Hospital for further treatment.
Asked what her next step in life would be, Hypolite told SNO that she just have to put her bad experience behind her and get a fresh start in life, now that everything is over.
“I have to move on with my life, because if it was left up to him, I would be dead,” she said.
Hypolite said she will be returning to her job at a local restaurant soon, and she is just focused now on ensuring that her emotional scars are healed, before she can even think about getting into another relationship.
“I felt bad that he is dead, but what can I do, what can I say?” she added.
The Monchy woman claims she shared an abusive relationship with her now dead boyfriend, Nathan Chassang, who drank poison after he repeatedly stabbed her in the back on April 20.
Hypolite had told SNO that she was being abused from day one of the relationship and kept it a secret. And even when her relatives found out about the abuse, she denied it.
On the day of the stabbing, the woman had confronted Chassang about being constantly abused and asked that they go their separate ways, but he did not take this lightly, as he was not willing to let go of the relationship.
Hypolite pretended to be dead when she was stabbed, which led Chassang to ingest the poisonous substance.
