Stacey Gwillian, from Swansea, was left for dead by her partner Keith Hughes after he tossed her into a shallow grave on the Swansea Bay coastal path between Bracelet Bay and Langland Bay in July last year.
Recounting the horrific tale to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid on Good Morning Britain, the courageous 34-year-old explained that she had to use her fingernails as a tool to get herself out.
"I came round and there were branches and shrubs put on top of me. I could hear my heart beating and I could hear the sound of the sea in the background," she said.

"It was like everything was in slow motion. All I could see were blurs of green and brown. I couldn't breathe, I couldn't move. It was like I was paralysed."
She continued: "It was awful really. Trying to get your head together to work out what was going on around you. I tried to get up, but couldn't.
"I had to use my nails to get out of where I was. That was all I could do. I tried to push but I didn't have the upper strength."

When she finally reached the surface, Stacey dashed for safety at a nearby golf range car park before being put in to an induced coma, according to Wales Online.
It's claimed she had to spend 26 days in hospital, 14 of them in an induced coma, and the injuries have still left Stacey with difficulty eating and speaking.
Her attacks were so serious that Stacey was left needing a walking aide.

When police arrested bodybuilder Keith, he told them: "You'll never find her," but received a huge shock when authorities told him that she was alive.
Keith was jailed for life at Swansea Crown Court in December last year for the attack, though it's believed he will be eligible to apply for parole in eight years.
