A 20-year-old from the University of South Carolina has shared the whole story of how she managed to save the kidnappers from a piece of advice given to her by her mother.
Jordan was going to her apartment after finishing work at 1. a.m.
While he was walking, three men approached him from behind and took him by force. To make matters worse they pointed a gun at him.
As they tried stealing her car, they realized they couldn’t operate it because it was a stick shift, and that’s when the real hell happened. Two of the men forcefully put Jordan in the car and forced her to drive them to the gas station. The third man ran away.
One of them told Jordan to withdraw money from an ATM machine. They told him that if he did not do as they were told they would rape him.
So the girl decided to implement a piece of advice her mother had given her.
“I thought back to my mom. She was almost a victim of assault when she was in college, and she fought back and fought the man off, and I thought you know, I’m going to be strong like my mom, I’m going to get myself out of this. ”
Beth Turner had always taught the girl to be her own mistress and how to behave if she were in a similar situation.
Jordan said: “My mom always told me, you know, don’t let them get you alone, because then you have no help, you have no hope for passerby’s to see you or hear you, and you have no help to get out . ”
After withdrawing money from the ATM Jordan started making an escape plan. As soon as she got in the car she decided not to put on her seat belt and as soon as the car started walking she jumped.
“I just kind of thought in my head, ‘Do it, do it, do it,’ and then the next thing I know, my hands were on the handle, I was opening the door and I was staring at the pavement,” Jordan explained.
As soon as he jumped Jordan he asked for help from the other berries to stop him. 2 cars did not stop but the third did.
“They were in a moving vehicle, without a driver, and a 20-year-old girl just outsmarted you. I wish I could have seen their faces at that moment so that they knew that I might have been a victim, but I was not victimized. “
After the incident, the kidnappers were arrested. They were well known to the police as they had been involved with a number of other crimes in the area.
