ANDERSON, S.C. - A woman was found holding her own eyeballs outside a South Carolina church, according to Anderson County deputies.

Deputies said they were called this morning to South Main Chapel and Mercy Center in Anderson to assist ems.

Witnesses called 911 after hearing the woman screaming.

They say she used her hands to gouge out her eyes, And fought with officers and emergency medical crews who came to help her.

"They were able to get her stabilized and on a stretcher I realized then that it was terrible and that she had done something that's going to traumatize her life forever, too," said Elizabeth Hiott.

That witness works at the church and says the woman had been there before during services and when meals were served but wasn't a regular.

Why the woman did it is still under investigation.
