The horrifying ordeal of Natascha Kampusch lasted for more than eight years, but the Austrian woman still managed to preserve her inner strength and take the opportunity to escape. Wolfgang Priklopil snatched Natascha off the street in 1998 when she was just 10 years old, keeping her in a locked cellar and abusing her for almost a decade. In 2006, Priklopil had Kampusch out in the garden cleaning and vacuuming his car. When his mobile phone rang and he turned away to take the call, she ran away as fast as she could, eventually getting a neighbor to call the police. Priklopil committed suicide by jumping in front of a train rather than be taken into custody.
