A Sickened Survivor Lost Her Childhoodsickened child, survives mad mom, induced symptoms, Munchausen by proxy, mbp, child abuse, julie gregory As a young child, Julie J. Gregory was continually x-rayed, operated on and medicated -- but nothing was wrong with her. Her mother, who suffered from Munchausen disorder, induced sickness in her little girl by telling her that matches were edible, administering prescriptions erratically and coaching her to enhance non-existent symptoms. Munchausen by proxy (MBP) is one of the most hidden and dangerous forms of child abuse in which the caretaker, usually the mother, invents or induces symptoms of sickness. Trapped by her mother's madness and insatiable desire for attention from medical professionals, Julie was forced to endure one of the most disturbing forms of abuse imaginable. Julie not only survived the torture but escaped the clutches of madness and rebuilt her identity as a strong woman and bestselling author of the book "Sickened: The True Story of a Lost Childhood."

Twenty villages along the shore were replaced by stagnant pools floating with bloated corpses after the storm, and as survivors tried to return to their lost homes, one recounted the chilling voice of a young girl screaming, "help me! Help me!" He searched for her, only to find no girl there and his family dead. Two boys who accidentally caught an old woman in their fishing net desperately took her extravagant gold jewelry -- that night their homes were shaken with a thunderous voice demanding to return the gold. Frightened, they complied.

He kissed two of his daughters goodbye and told them to take care of their sisters. Then, he received a chilling call at work from his daughter Chloe, who told him, "Daddy, you better come home." He did. Chloe was sitting on the steps with a vacant look in her eyes. Inside, his wife lay naked in a bloody pool on a mattress, his 7-year-old daughter was dead in the tub and the two others had their skulls beaten in. Chloe, the sole survivor, told her father that her mother woke up screaming that demons were after her children. The mother then killed the children with a hammer before they could become possessed but Chloe escaped. The little girl watched her mother commit suicide before calling her father.
Madness at Sea: A True Story of Survivalalbatross, sea survival, lost at sea, stranded in the ocean, no food or water An ill-sorted crew of young adults set off to sail a 58-foot yacht, called the "Trashman," from Maine to Florida. The crew of five went sailing without charts, and encountered gale force winds off of North Carolina. After colliding with a rogue wave, water rushed the cabin, and within minutes, Trashman was sunk. The crew -- including author Deborah Scaling Kiley -- struggled to survive on a rubber dinghy with no food and water for days. Two crew members drank salt water, causing them to go mad and throw themselves into shark-infested waters. Four days after the accident, the only remaining two crew members were rescued -- but the events of the tragic incident still haunt them. Scaling Kiley's book, "Albatross: The True Story of a Woman's Survival at Sea," is an account of her experience.
Haunted Mountain of Horrorsfrozen tundra, haunted ski trip, couple lost in the winter, wife dies, terrible vacation, survivor Giles Blackburn After nine days stranded in the British Colombia wilderness in 2009 -- dressed only for "a day of skiing at the resort" -- 51-year-old Giles Blackburn skied his way to a rescue chopper ... alone. His wife Marie Jose Fortin, 44, had died several days earlier, and he was forced to bear witness as the cold sucked the life from her lips. He is still haunted by his wife's death and by the fact that the couple's numerous SOS distress signs were ignored by rescuers twice. The man suffered frost bite in the February mountain weather that fell far below zero. When a third helicopter flew over and spotted the frost bitten man in horrible shape waving next to an SOS signal, a rescue team was finally dispatched, and he was taken to safety.
Little Angels Survived a Horrific Firehaunted school, chicago fire of 1958, our lady of angels elementary school, fire survivors On a cold winter's night in December 1958, one of America's worst fires took the lives of 92 children and three nuns at Our Lady of Angels, a Catholic elementary school on Chicago's west side. As the classrooms did not have proper fire exits, innocent nuns simply told the children to pray for rescue as flames engulfed the school until the smoke forced them to the windows. Many children jumped to their deaths. Others survived the fall with injuries. The tragedy haunts the city of Chicago to this day. Changes in the nation's fire code regulations resulted from the fire, as did a chilling book by David Cowan and John Kuenster titled "To Sleep with Angels: A Story of Fire." The frightful images of that day create one of America's most soul-terrorizing catastrophes.
