A Kentucky woman, beaten bloody by her husband, used her cell phone to take a “selfie” – a self-image picture – and sent it out via Facebook with a call for help. The Business Insider reported Thursday that Susann Stacy’s horrific photo of her broken face and her urgent plea – “Help please anyone” – likely saved her life.

Stacy told police her husband, Donnie Stacy, confronted her after he overheard her on the phone talking in their bathroom to another man. The police report says he used a handgun to beat her and ripped out the phone line so she could not call for help.

According to the report, although Stacy had no reception on her cell phone, she did have Wi-Fi connectivity, so she sent out her selfie to her Facebook friends. Fortunately, one of her friends saw Stacy’s shocking photo and immediately phoned 911.

Leslie County Sheriff's Deputy Sam Mullins commented on Stacy's injuries.

“Several lacerations to the head. They appeared to be bad but we really couldn't tell at the time, due to her hair was matted to her, and the blood,” Mullins said.

The couple lives in rural Leslie County, Ky. with a young son. Deputy Mullins said when they arrived, Donnie had fled the home, but was arrested a short time later. Police found the loaded weapon in the couple's backyard by their son's tire swing.

Donnie Stacy faces assault charges and is being held at the Leslie County Detention Center.
