Colleen Stan's life changed drastically in 1977, when he was only 20 years old.
The young woman, who lived in California, United States, was kidnapped and held captive in a coffin until 1984, seven years.
A couple, Cameron and Janice Hooker, kidnapped her after seeing her asking for help at the side of the street. The young woman trusted them because they were a couple and because they were traveling with a baby in the car.
After an hour's travel, Cameron showed a knife and, under his threat, tied and gagged the young woman. They wrapped it in a coffin, which was under the bed of the couple, and let it out only to rape or torture it.
The woman admitted that she only survived because "I learned to send my mind to any other place."
