Injuries suffered by doctor who was stabbed by Tinder date

A doctor who was stabbed 11 times by a man she met on Tinder has released new images of her horrific injuries.

Angela Jay, 28, posted the photos as part of her preparation for hiking the Kokoda Track in April to raise money for White Ribbon Australia.

The confronting images show bruises and stitched-up stab wounds all over Dr Jay’s legs, evidence of the brutality of the sickening attack which almost killed her.

'Even though my attacker is no longer here, the memory of him and what he did terrifies me every day, but I didn't die for a reason,' said Dr Jay (pictured are her injuries) 

‘Even though my attacker is no longer here, the memory of him and what he did terrifies me every day, but I didn’t die for a reason,’ said Dr Jay (pictured are her injuries) 

‘These photos were taken days after I was almost murdered. It is with courage I share them with you,’ Dr Jay wrote.

‘Looking at them still shakes me to the core and reminds me of the darkest time in my life.’

Dr Jay was attacked by her ex-boyfriend, Matthew Lambert, 36, who stabbed her 11 times and doused her in petrol because she had broken up with him.

Lambert lay in wait at Dr Jay’s home before the sickening assault, and was killed by police after he fled the scene while she crawled to her neighbour’s house for help.

Despite still suffering the after-effects of the horrific experience, Dr Jay has dedicated herself to raise awareness and encourage other women to speak out.

Dr Jay has previously spoken out about the deep emotional impact the event had on her life.

All it takes is a man to walk past her on the street wearing her attacker’s cologne to send her spiraling into anxiety and bring on a crippling attack of PTSD.

‘Even though my attacker is no longer here, the memory of him and what he did terrifies me every day, but I didn’t die for a reason,’ she said.
