She explained how she thought Jack McClean was simply unconscious when she left him in the car in order to get help from passers-by.

In an interview with The Sun, the reality star opened up about how she pulled herself out of the car which was on its roof when they stopped rolling.

She told the publication: “I could just feel my arm absolutely covered in blood, It was like I was lying in a hot bath there was so much around me.

“I didn’t want to admit it to myself that he could be dead. So I thought, ‘Right I can either lay still and bleed to death, or snap my own arm to try to save us – I had no choice.

“So I somehow snapped my arm through pure adrenaline and panic. I climbed out of the car and I was kind of like holding my arm together with my left hand."

The starlet went on to explain how she managed to gather the strength to run to the top of the bank and scream for help, but confessed that she thought she was dying when she saw a flashlight ahead.

Yazmin added: “I ran up to the top of the bank, I was screaming for help and then all of a sudden, I saw a flashlight. I thought I was seeing the light and I was dying.”

It comes after the star was spotted leaving her Essex home on Thursday (July 14) for the first time since she she arrived back in the UK after the incident.

An official went on to tell MailOnline how Yaz was forced to pull herself from the overturned car with a bleeding arm and tasked with climbing through "thorny bushes" and up a steep bank.

Emergency services rushed to the scene but they were unable to save Jake while Yazmin was rushed to hospital, suffering from serious arm injuries.
