It didn't use the Middleburg road, it took the Ogies. My sister looked at me and I looked at her back after that the people told us to get on the ground, take off our shoes and clothes. They took our money, clothes and phones.

The next thing I saw, they opened the sliding door and threw me out. When I wanted to get my sister the pushed me out. I don't know who found me, I woke up in a hospital.
