Ohio shocker: 3 women kidnapped for a decade delivered 5 babies
London: Three women in the United States who were held captive in a dungeon for a decade gave birth to five babies during the ordeal.
Gina DeJesus, 23, Michelle Knight, 30, and Amanda Berry, 26, and her six-year-old daughter fled the house in Cleveland, Ohio.
According to the Mirror, Amanda fled the hell-hole with the help of a hero neighbour before her dramatic 911 call ended the victims` ordeal.
It had been feared that Amanda and the other captives, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, had been murdered.
After escaping the house on Monday just three miles from where they each went missing between 2002 and 2004, they named their captor as 52-year-old Ariel Castro, who has been taken into custody with his two brothers.
The women were aged between 14 and 22 when they disappeared. Police said that the three women also had `multiple` pregnancies.
There was evidence of as many as five children being born while the women were held hostage.
One of the victims suffered as many as three miscarriages because she was so malnourished.
Reports also told how the women were beaten so badly they lost other babies.
