Girl, 19, leaps from window & plunges 30ft to escape 'kidnappers who had tortured her and planned to sell her'
A TEENAGER has been left seriously injured after she jumped from a window to escape alleged sex traffickers who had "tortured her".
Horrifying footage shows the moment Sirin N. E., 19, threw herself 30ft from a window to escape her kidnappers.
In the video, she can be seen dangling her legs from the building in the Turkish city of Antalya on Thursday while screaming for help.
Not understanding the danger she was in, onlookers tried to convince the 19-year-old to go back inside.
Moments later, Sirin jumped hitting a parked car before landing on the concrete pavement.
According to reports, the teen ignored the advice of police officers to stay inside out of fear of being locked in the apartment by her kidnappers who have yet to be identified.
After hitting the concrete, paramedics came to the victim’s aid and she muttered: "I was kidnapped.
"They kidnapped me and took me hostage, they came from Iran. They wanted to prostitute me."
She added: "They tortured me. They forced me to have sex and filmed it, and then threatened me and my family. It would be better if I died."
The woman was immediately rushed to hospital for treatment.
Sahin Iyidilli, one of the people who witnessed the incident, told a local news outlet: "I was sitting in the kitchen when I heard shouting outside.
"When I looked out the window, I heard her yelling ‘I want to die’."
Sirin survived the fall but was seriously injured from the 30ft drop.
Pictures show the teenager wearing a neck brace and being carried away in a stretcher by paramedics.
Another witness, Yilmaz Aktas, said: "We tried to convince her not to jump, but she wouldn't listen. Officers arrived but I don't think she believed they were police."
He added: "I think she jumped out of fear. She said she had been tortured. She was asking for help."
An investigation into the incident is ongoing and Sirin's current health status is still unknown.

- Always keep your phone nearby.
- Get in touch with charities for help, including the Women’s Aid live chat helpline and services such as SupportLine.
- If you are in danger, call 999.
- Familiarise yourself with the Silent Solution, reporting abuse without speaking down the phone, instead dialing “55”.
- Always keep some money on you, including change for a pay phone or bus fare.
- If you suspect your partner is about to attack you, try to go to a lower-risk area of the house – for example, where there is a way out and access to a telephone.
- Avoid the kitchen and garage, where there are likely to be knives or other weapons. Avoid rooms where you might become trapped, such as the bathroom, or where you might be shut into a cupboard or other small space.
