Doctor Didn’t Believe Her Until He Discovered THIS
Most people don’t realize that slavery still exists in the form of human trafficking. The story of 15-year-old Olivia shocked many people. Her doctor didn’t believe her until he discovered piece of evidence inside of her arm. Here are details of her story.
Imagine that you’re a 15-year-old and you’re very excited because you’re going to the big city of Los Angeles to visit your uncle for the summer. You’ll be away from your parents and you’ll get that little bit of freedom you’ve been wanting! When you get there, your uncle offers you a fruity drink, and you could swear it had alcohol in it. You start to feel dizzy and the next thing you know, you wake up on a mattress in a dark room and you don’t have any clothes on. Your body feels heavy and you can barely stay awake. Many questions circle in your mind: where are you? Where is your uncle? Why am you in pain? Why is there a bloody cut on your arm?
That 15-year-old girl is a real victim of human trafficking. Her uncle was involved in a ring of people who would find young girls to drug up and sell for pr@stitution. That young girl was finally rescued after 3 years of torture. Shockingly, she survived and lives to tell her story, but she is just one girl in the hundreds of cases reported each year.
Human trafficking is a modern form of slavery. The newest way to keep track of victims is to put a chip that is the size of a piece of rice into their body. That way, the predators will always know where they are. According to the Trafficking Resource Center, there are 1,654 human trafficking cases reported this year. The most common form is $ex trafficking, which can make big money for the predators. California has the highest number of human trafficking victims, followed by Texas and Florida.
How Olivia got out of the ring of human traffickers will shock you. Her uncle dumped her outside of a hospital after 3 long years of being his slave. He couldn’t sell her anymore because she was then 8 months pregnant. Now 18-years-old, the hospital crew brought her inside the hospital. It took several days for all the drugs to wear off and for her to be conscious enough to talk to the doctor.
Once she was able to talk, she insisted that she had a tracking device in her arm. Because of her dazed look in her eyes and messy appearance, doctors thought she was just another pill seeker. They and wanted to get her out as soon as possible. Doctors also knew that tracking devices are most commonly used on dogs and cats to keep track of their whereabouts.
One doctor decided to take a look at her arm, and to their amazement, there was a little scar. Upon opening up the scar, the doctor saw a little metal chip, known as a radio frequency identification chip (RFID) in her arm. Everyone in the room was stunned. No one knew that these chips were actually used on humans.
Olivia began to piece together what had happened to her over the 3 years of abuse. She had been been passed from man to man and was always on the go. Every few weeks, her uncle would show up to collect money and arrange where she would go next. That’s why he had to implant the tracking device: to always know exactly where to find her.
Police and other authorities work tirelessly to find these criminals and put an end to this horrific crime. Many survivors like Olivia have gained the courage to speak out on the matter and educate the public on what to look for in victims.
