Cleveland Kidnapping Survivors Recount Their Escape

“Fear paralyzed Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus during the 10 years that they, along with fellow survivor Michelle Knight, were held captive by Ariel Castro in his Cleveland home. Berry and DeJesus talked with ABC’s Robin Roberts about their captivity, their escape, and how they survived the ordeal. Fear, they said, is what kept them from ever attempting to escape. Berry, 29, and DeJesus, 25, were abducted in 2003 and 2004, respectively, as teens. One day, Berry said, she saw an opportunity to run. Berry’s daughter, Jocelyn, who was born in captivity, noted that “Daddy’s car” was gone.
