Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Bronx mom had order of protect against ex who nearly killed her in machete attack, family says (WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT)”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Lisbeth Acosta moved from New Jersey all the way to the Bronx to get away from her abusive ex. But that, and an order of protection, wasn’t enough to save her from his unhinged fury.

Now the 20-year-old mom is clinging to life after Hector Delacruz, the father of her child, allegedly ambushed her in the lobby of her new home about 9:15 p.m. Friday, hacking her repeatedly with a machete.

Horrifying pictures shared with the Daily News by the victim’s devastated father show she was sliced across her face down to the bone. The blow was so forceful Acosta needed eight hours of surgery at St. Barnabas Hospital to reconstruct her jaw and mouth, her family said.

“We’re hoping that God does his work and that she gets better,” the victim’s aunt, Lina Tejeda, 62, told The News in Spanish. “She’s stable right now . . . We hope God will let her recover.”

She was also hacked in the back of her neck and right hand as she desperately tried to escape the lobby of the Grand Concourse building near E. 196th St. in Fordham Manor, leaving her in critical condition.
