Actress Ashley Judd is recovering in a hospital in South Africa, after she was close to losing a leg, following a “catastrophic” fall in the Congo jungle.

In a live Instagram conversation with a New York Times reporter, Judd, who is on a hospital bed, says he was walking in the Congo jungle when he tripped over a fallen tree, breaking his leg. Judd studied the Bonobos chimpanzee, an endangered species.

The actress described “55 incredibly hard hours” during which she was transported on a stretcher or motorcycle for six hours to the medical center in South Africa. The actress remembers that she repeatedly lost consciousness, and that she recited Psalm 23 – “The Lord is my shepherd.”

Judd said she was fully aware of the privilege of being able to transfer to a fully equipped medical center. Most Congolese, she says, would have stayed in the village, and lost their footing and perhaps even their lives.
