Mori Gabriella Montgomery's life was horribly changed one night at the hands of her boyfriend; the 19-year-old aspiring model and social media fanatic was beaten so badly doctors say she may have died had she not received treatment when she did.

One night in February the teen was driving with her then-boyfriend who she described as a jealous and suspicious man. He attacked her and kicked her out of the car, but it didn't end there.

Ms Montgomery posted these words to social media (via News.com.au):

"This might be a little graphic but I just want to let everyone know that I am okay. I am a survivor of domestic violence with a boy I dated for 8 months. I really thought everything was fine but he constantly questioned me about cheating and flirting. Nonsense. I never looked at someone the way he looked at me. Thought I loved this boy. How can someone that 'loves' me do this to me?

"The scars on my chest are way worse and extend down to my right nipple, completely scarred. The skin on my shoulder has been completely skinned. And I have bruising on my rib cage, neck, and my muscles. I was kicked out of a moving vehicle, then beaten and dragged, as I blacked out and was left lying there in my own puddle of blood. Doctors said I could have died if not made it when I did.

"I am so blessed and beyond lucky to be alive and have so much support from friends, family, and strangers. As I try to recover I ask to please keep me in your prayers. I have to wear a neck brace for 3-4 weeks, an arm cast and I can barely walk for now.

"Thank you for all the love. I hope to be an inspiration to women and anyone involved in domestic violence."

Mori recovered and took to social media to document her return to health, gaining thousands of fans and well-wishers in the process.

Rather than hide away, she hopes her story played out in pictures and videos and conversations with her followers will inspire other women who have experienced domestic violence to consider themselves survivors rather than victims.
