23 Jul – Super Girls' Aka Chio recently revealed that she received nine stitches to her upper lip after being attacked by a stray dog.
As reported on Mingpao, the singer recounted the incident in an Instagram post where she showed off her injured lips, saying that she went to a dog shelter for a second time recently to provide supplies and greeted the strays that were rescued.
"When I crouched down to touch one of the dogs, everything was fine for the first 30 seconds. But suddenly one of the dogs opened its mouth and bit me on the face," she wrote.
Aka stated that she immediately covered her mouth with her hand, and realised there was blood on her hand.
"I did not dare to imagine if my lips were okay or what shape it was," she said, adding that her mind went blank after seeing the extent of the injury and had to be accompanied by her family to the hospital for treatment.
Thanking the doctors for their medical assistance, Aka revealed that she also received a tetanus injection and treatment to prevent rabies aside from the sutures.
However, despite the harrowing experience, Aka stressed that she will not be deterred from caring for the dogs.
"Dogs are always men's best friends. I also have to learn how to get along with dogs to make them comfortable. I will take a good rest. Don't worry," she added.
