A woman's skin was burning and appeared to be melting off as she ran out from her father's Brooklyn apartment Saturday afternoon after doused her in a household acid.
The wheelchair-bound Jerome Lynch, 69, later admitted to police that he was the one to throw a cup full of drain cleaner onto his 50-year-old daughter Darlene.
'You could see the smoke coming off her body,' neighbor Clarissa Shakespeare told The New York Daily News.
'Everyone was just traumatized and scared. Her skin looked like melting wax. And then her whole eye lid was melted. The whole left side from her face all the way down to her feet.'
