India Ali, an Instagram model on Wednesday narrated a terrifying moment she woke up naked and badly beaten in a pool of her own vomit in July 2016.
According to Ali, She had gone on a date the night before with a man she met on Instagram.
She said James Baker, 27, had invited her to dinner at a Cheesecake Factory and posted video of their date online. One image showed a table full of empty shot glasses.
She said she drank too much and had only fuzzy memories of leaving the restaurant. She doesn’t recall how they ended up back at the Westin hotel near LAX.
Ali told the Daily News she lifted up her head and saw that she was soaked in her vomit.
“My face was laying in it on the floor.
“I got up and looked on the bed. There was blood everywhere. I made my way to the bathroom and saw bloody towels on the floor.”
“That’s when I saw how beat up I was. It was like I was in a dream, like a nightmare actually. It was a numb, heavy feeling in my head. I was so dazed,” she recalled.
She called the police after panic set in.
Ali spent a week in the intensive care unit, Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney David Berger said.
