The woman, who identified herself as Ms. Yang, told a local television station her estranged husband went to her work in Shandong in east China and bit off her entire nose and then swallowed it, Ms. Yang said.
“And the next thing I knew, he pushed my head towards the wall and ate my nose in one go,” she said.
A doctor said Ms. Yang’s nose is almost entirely gone, and she needs major surgery to have a normal-functioning nose again, Daily Mail said.
Ms. Yang was working a night shift at the time. She and her husband had a child together.
Ms. Yang said her husband had a dominant personality after the child was born.
Police are still trying to find her husband.
