"I was scalped at 13 weeks pregnant"

Michelle Dowsett, 42, worked as a school teacher but lived on a farm with her husband, Bob, and two young kids, Josh, 2, and Liv, 18 months, so it wasn’t unusual for her to lend a helping hand when it came to yard work.


Bob and her uncle, Craig, were having some trouble with one of the farm machines, so Michelle lent a hand. Eventually they fixed the problem and were just about done, which is when disaster struck.


‘I felt a tug on my hair,’ Michelle told that’s life!


‘My ponytail had snagged on a spinning bolt connected to the motor, and the top of my head had been clean pulled off.’


Michelle shares her incredible story of survival on this episode...
