A 26-year-old Florida woman may never walk again after her kind gesture to offer a stranger a ride to the hospital turned into a nightmare attack that has ruined her life. Tallahassee-resident Katie Schlinger told her traumatic story to MailOnline, revealing details about the night she offered to drive a stranger to the hospital before 'he physically and sexually attacked her'. Ms Schlinger says she fought back and escaped with her life, but two spinal surgeries later, she still can't use her right arm or walk on her own. And since she's uninsured, she already owes one hospital $250,000 and is about to be kicked out of a third. Survivor: 26-year-old Katie Schlinger survived a horrific attack late last month when she offered to drive a stranger to the hospital Survivor: 26-year-old Katie Schlinger survived a horrific attack late last month when she offered to drive a stranger to the hospital It all goes back to December 20 when Ms Schlinger was in Aiken, South Carolina, to support her brother as he underwent open heart surgery at Aiken Regional Medical Center.
She was smoking a cigarette in the car at the nearby Quality Inn around 4am when she was approached by 23-year-old Michael Antwon Fuller who asked her for a cigarette and the two started talking about their relatives in the hospital.
Fuller told her he was worried about his uncle at the hospital and wondered if she wouldnt mind driving him up there so he could see him.
Yeah Ill give you a ride if you promise not to hurt me, she joked, agreeing to drive him since the hospital was only four minutes away and Fuller was clean cut, well-spoken and well dressed. Who could hurt that precious face? Ms Schlinger recalls him responding.

My pretty younger cousin lives in Aiken. I used to be horrified by my cousins' racism, and their policy of keeping pistols on the nightstand. Now I'm not.

that is the thing with life and money....there is only so much to go around....
Once again, the British Press reports the news the American press won’t.
Hmmm.....sounds like someone else I know that was described that way and he's a criminal too!
This sub-human mutant (God Bless you Bob Grant) should be made into her personal slave for life - work to pay her bills and support her until he dies. If not, execute him and recycle whatever chemicals can be retrieved from his body to defray the cost.
His color is irrelevant. He is a sub-human mutant.
I am unable to provide a constructive comment on this story due to extreme anger.
A problem exists where if you own a truck you can’t let a hitchiker ride in the bed of the truck...because they have to be seatbelted.
So trucks can’t safely give hitchhikers rides.
Neither can anyone.
So the consequence is that hitchhiking is reduced...probably not a bad thing. Another consequence is that some good samartians have to take a chance every once in a great while to help someone out and give them a ride, instead of telling them to put their thumb out and hopefully get a ride in some ones truck.
Another gullible white liberal learns a hard lesson.......
Not sure which is more tragic, the people in this story or me and the dozens of others who had this as their first thought and gave the comment a thumbs up.
didn’t her mother ever tell her not to pick up strangers? i’m reminded of ‘the snake’ by al wilson (?).
I don’t think I’d give that a thumbs up.
But it sure is tragic that these people are willing to put their lives on the line in order to believe the lies that are necessary to sustain their worldview.
You see, liberals’ want to think of themselves as good, moral people, which is the foundational lie of all the other lies they have to maintain in order to sustain this basic lie.
4am, visiting hours don’t begin until God knows when...
Seriously? Nothing struck her as odd about this?
I am very sorry this happened to her, but damn lady.
Women, when some man you love says, “Please be careful and don’t put yourself in bad situations!”, this is exactly what he means. Don’t despise him for trying to manager your life or tell you how to live. Thank him for caring that you continue to live.
Use your head!
First question: who visits their uncle in the hospital at 4 AM?
I concur, but that was a meandering way of saying what the original site poster said, albeit, more succinctly.
An unfortunate story, and extremely poor judgement on her part.
That doesn’t excuse the perp at all, but should serve as an example for others.
DUMB, DUMB, DUMB!!!!
What's that old saying about nothing good happening after midnight?
I guess the original post was just an observation, instead of a “serves her right”.
” Fuller was clean cut, well-spoken and well dressed.”
That doesn’t matter if it’s one of O’bastard’s sons.
If she had refused to give him a ride, she would have been an “evil racist engaging in profiling.” Of course, better that than what happened.
