Elizabeth Smart and Amanda Berry Sit Down for Emotional Interview

When Elizabeth Smart was fourteen, a man abducted her at knifepoint from her bedroom in Salt Lake City. She spent nine months of horror being raped, physically assaulted and threatened before she was rescued. Today, Elizabeth is an activist, author, and contributor for ABC News.

When Amanda Berry was sixteen, she accepted a ride from a man that drove her to his home in Cleveland, lured her inside, and then tied her up. She was one of three women to be trapped inside the man’s house for ten years, where they lived in abominable conditions and were repeatedly raped and abused. In 2013, she escaped with her six-year-old-daughter and contacted the police; the three women were finally set free. Today, Amanda has joined FOX 8 Cleveland news team to help find missing persons.

Two women who survived unspeakable acts. Two women using their past to help others. Now, their tragedy is bringing them together. In an exclusive interview with Fox 8 News, Elizabeth and Amanda sat down together to discuss the horrors that bind them together and the mission they now carry in their hearts.

Below are a few snippets and clips from the interview and another segment the women filmed for Crime Watch Daily.
