Jerry has something stuck in his throat: a tree branch. Swerving to avoid a deer, he had plunged off the road and into a ravine, impaling himself on the tree. After gruesomely cutting himself free with a hunting knife, he is still trapped in the ditch for days. If he can't drag his battered body up the steep embankment, his chances of survival are zero.
And throughout a terrifying, brutal abduction in which she is raped repeatedly, slashed and blinded, Melissa can only think of her daughter. The two-year-old girl was left alone when Melissa was dragged from home by her armed tormentor. Seeing her daughter safe again inspires Melissa to survive the hideous suffering.
These brave souls lived to tell their amazing stories in this latest episode of I SURVIVED.
