Naomi shared that she was helping with the stitches because she used to be a nurse before becoming a singer. Per reports, Ashley, who often travels to Congo, suffered an accident after stumbling over a fallen tree.

Earlier this month, [Naomi] confessed that it was hard to watch her daughter struggle.

The “Double Jeopardy” star endured a 55-hour rescue in a forest in the country where she went to study the endangered bonobos monkeys. The 52-year-old suffered nerve damage, internal bleeding, and she broke her leg in four spots.

In several Instagram updates, Ashley opened up about her accident and thanked the medical staff in South Africa, where she was transferred for treatment. She disclosed that she underwent a 7-hour surgery for her bones and nerves.
