and visitors walked past her thinking she was part of the attraction
Jessica Rue, 18, was working as an actress at the Creepyworld attraction in St Louis, Missouri, last October when she was found unconscious with the prop around her neck. It is thought that during the two to ten minutes she was left hanging, members of the public walked past her, thinking she was a gory lifesize doll. Eventually discovered by a co-worker, Jessica, then 17, spent three days in a coma before she came to. The noose had choked off oxygen to her brain. One year on, she is unable to recall the events leading up to the accident.
