    This is such a shame and can happen to anyone. I hope she recovers fully. She is a very pretty girl too. But, I find people wearing head phones so annoying and they are targets for attacks by others since they are not fully paying attention. Also I often wonder how they will be hearing when they turn 50, most play them way too loud and are damaging their ears. Its a terrible thing to lose your hearing.
