A woman says moldy implants nearly killed her.

Anne Ziegenhorn says she was not surprised when her body began to fall apart after years of unblemished health. The culprit, she says, was on her chest the entire time: her breast implants.

The Shalimar, Florida woman told WEAR-TV it all started in 2011 when she began gaining weight, losing her vision, and experiencing a burning pain.

Sores began to appear on her body and she says her mental state began to deteriorate.

"I felt like that was it, I was gonna die, and the doctors were gonna let me die," Ziegenhorn says.
