Former Baywatch beauty Donna D'Errico is back in Los Angeles after suffering serious injuries during her quest to find Noah's Ark.
A shocking picture showing her injuries was taken shortly after D'Errico fell while climbing Mount Ararat in Turkey. The mountain is believed by some to be the final resting place of Noah's Ark.
D'Errico suffered cuts and bruises over her body. Her face also swelled up. She looked much better after the 7,000 mile plane trip back to Los Angeles.
"It was scary. I took a little scary tumble up there," said D'Errico.
D'Errico was climbing the mountain looking for the remains of the fabled ark. The Bible says the vessel came to rest on a mountain following a flood that covered the entire planet. Mount Ararat is thought to be that holy place.
"To me, it's more fulfilling a lifetime dream that I've had since I was a kid," said D'Errico.
Thr 44-year-old actress appeared on Baywatch for three seasons starting in 1996.
Despite the accident, D'Errico says she's planning another trip next month to Turkey to continue her search for the Ark.
D'Errico admits, "I know that everyone thinks it's funny and it's a big joke and people don't believe in it, but I do."
