ANDERSON COUNTY, S.C. — South Carolina deputies said they found a woman holding her own eyeballs after she gouged them out.

WYFF-TV reports that deputies were called after a witness said she heard a woman screaming outside a church for someone to call 911 and saw blood on her. The 19-year-old woman was kneeling nearby train tracks, gouging out her eye with her hands, according to WCSC-TV.

Witnesses said they tried to stop the woman before calling 911. When deputies and emergency crews arrived, witness said she had gouged out her other eye. The woman reportedly was holding her eyes in her hands and fought with anyone who approached her.

Anderson County Sheriff Chad McBride said it took two or three deputies and three emergency crew members to subdue the woman and render aid. The woman was eventually loaded into a medical helicopter.
