Cleveland kidnap survivors thank public in new video

Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight have released a video to thank the public for the "outpouring of love and kindness" they have received since being reunited with their families.

Speaking together publicly for the first time, the women said they have been overwhelmed with support, not just from Cleveland, but from all over the world. The video features the women, and the parents of Gina De Jesus. In the film, Michelle Knight, looking healthy and happy said:

"I just want everyone to know I am doing just fine. I may have been through hell and back, but I am strong enough to walk through hell with a smile on my face, and with my head held high, and my feet firmly on the ground."

52-year-old Castro, accused of kidnapping the three women, has pleaded not guilty to the 329 charges against him.
