(Scroll down for video) A woman is suing a popular dating site after she was almost killed during a date, according to a lawsuit filed in Nevada.
The Las Vegas woman is suing the online dating service Match.com, after her date brutally attacked her.
Mary Kay Beckman is seeking $10 million from the company for failing to publicize the dangers of online dating.
She said that Match.com paired her with Wade Mitchell Ridley, whom she dumped after just eight days. Four months later, he hid in a garage and stabbed her ten times.
"There were 10 stab wounds, eight in my physical body, twice in the head, and when the knife broke, there was stomping on my head," Beckman said. "I should not be in this position today," she said.
Beckman has undergone surgery to repair her jaw, preserve her sight and remove part of her skull to replace it with a synthetic components.
Ridley was arrested for attempted murder and for killing another woman in Phoenix, Arizona. He later committed suicide in prison.
