Hell and Back: 3 Sex Slaves Girls Share Gratitude for Being Freed

A heartwarming video has been released showing all three victims from the Cleveland house of horrors, who appear healthy and happy as they recover from a decade in sickening captivity.

This is the first on-camera appearance of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight since they were freed from the clutches of Ariel Castro – who allegedly beat and raped them and held them locked inside his house under unimaginable conditions.

The footage also marks the first public appearance of Michelle Knight since 2002. It was not even know that she had been kidnapped until she was found in Castro’s home on Seymour Avenue on May 6.

The video, which is three and a half minutes long, was posted on YouTube late Monday by Hennes Paynter Communications, the public relations firm that the three young women and their families hired after they were freed from captivity.
