Trailer-hitch attack on First Nations woman called ‘hate crime’ | Toronto Star


Trailer-hitch attack on First Nations woman called ‘hate crime’ | Toronto Star: She said she and her sister were walking together in a residential neighbourhood of Thunder Bay early in the morning on Jan. 29 when a car drove towards them and a blond passenger wearing a plaid shirt and a baseball cap hurled something in their direction.

Barbara, 34, was hit in the abdomen with a metal trailer hitch and Melissa, 37, says she heard someone in the car say, “I (expletive) got one of them.”

“It came from the passenger side,” Melissa said in a phone interview from Thunder Bay.

Barbara required surgery for her injuries.

Melissa said Barbara’s body appears to be shutting down and she has been told by doctors that her liver and kidneys are shutting down.

“She looks like a skeleton,” Melissa said.

“She said, ‘I can feel it. I’m dying. It’s my body that’s giving up,’ ” Melissa said.
