A Survivor’s Story

Fourteen years ago, Angela Wiggs ’94 graduated from the journalism program with honors and a minor in communications. The plan was for her to write the stories, not be the story. That all changed on October 16, 2000, when the former Princeton Packet reporter was brutally attacked and nearly killed by her husband. An arterial specialist who treated her that night told her father that he did not have minutes to save her life—he had only seconds. The outlook was grim, but, after 32 days, Angela awoke. She has been battling back ever since.
