OMG! Help!!

A friends just gave me this. She says it's an original but I'm not sure. Anyway, doesn't matter much. I was hoping I could get something, but not looking good. The best I could get was by using the Channels and using blue. It seems to have more details then the others. let me know what you think.

The girl that is second from the left, her head is pretty much non existant at this point.

The head outline is there, but nothing much left of the face.

That is one scary to retouch pic

I found a bit of her face in the blue channel. Copying the image to a new layer, blurring and setting the blurred layer to Color mode is a good way to sharpen up a blue or yellow channel that has lots of noise. This helped just enough. I made a copy of the channel then went into Lab and copied the face (such as it is) from the blue copy into the lightness channel. Then back to RGB with some work on the Green channel to try to balance the whacked color shifts. There's a face there, but it ain't pretty.

This was a quick fix. Clearly there's lots more to be done with the individual channels.
