Asbury University student Isabella Willingham, 21, was rushed into intensive care in November after being mysteriously and brutally beaten in her dorm, leaving her unable to breathe for 23 minutes.

The Kentucky-based student was found unresponsive in her dorm room, suffering deep lacerations and bruising, according to Lex18. Paramedics told her parents that she’d stopped breathing on her own for a total of 23 minutes, but her injuries were the real concern. Not only were her legs swollen and covered in deep wounds, but her acrylic nails were also ripped off.

“At 11 that night, we get a call from the resident director of her dorm, and she tells us that Bella is in an ambulance on her way to the emergency room, that she had been found unresponsive on the floor of her room by her roommate,” her parents told the outlet.

Asbury University told the outlet that staff were aware of the situation but did not believe there was an immediate threat to campus. Willingham’s father said he was disappointed that the students were not put on high alert and no one was asked to come forward with information.

Willingham spent two weeks at the University of Kentucky Hospital. When she awoke, she was allegedly told her injuries were likely caused by her falling out of a bunk bed. “There’s no way these could’ve been caused by anything other than someone doing something to her,” her parents noted.

Asbury University did not immediately respond to a request for clarification by the Daily Caller over whether an independent investigation was carried out following the attack. The school is working with local law enforcement, but there is no indication of what Asbury University plans to do to protect its current or future female students from similar crimes.
