Coronation Street's Daisy Midegely makes life-changing decision following attack

Daniel tried to support his fiance through the ordeal but unsurprisingly had no idea how to handle such a disturbing situation.

Explaining the real-life facts behind acid attacks, Mairead stated: “The reason women are targeted is because, even in countries where their rights are limited by barbaric and archaic laws and traditions, they value how they look, making the destruction of such looks an effective punishment.

“Many victims suffer from changes in life perspective, behaviour, feelings, social withdrawal, social isolation, and clinical depression.”

While Daisy left the attack largely unscathed, she now has to live with the guilt of knowing she was the intended victim, not Ryan, who has been left with life-changing injuries.
