Transcript for How School Girl Escaped Being Kidnapped By Boko Haram: Part 2
Reporter: We've just received tragic nudes about one -- news about one of the women we were planning to meet who escaped boko harm. We just got word one of the women who was supposed to come down who was pregnant she died in premature labor. She ran away seven months pregnant. How can that be? How does that happen. Her name was husana. It happens all the time. Reporter: Is the remaining come still going to come? Yeah. She's willing to come. Reporter: I just need a minute. When we finally get to meet the other woman, she is still grieving for her friend. They were held in captivity by boko harm together. Have you seen the baby yet? This is the baby. This is the first time she is seeing the baby. She says villagers call it the boko baby. His given name is Muhammad. The moment passes. Creating a good future for the baby is at the heart of the mission here. Some children who talk about dreaming of being educated and boko harm says their main objective is to stop western education, and this is a situation where the children, all they want to do is learn. Power brings news that the U.S. Is pledging to give more aid. But endless hours of diplomacy could be overshadowed by a single moment. A 7-year-old boy chasing security helicopters, we're told, darted into the road. One of the armored cars ahead of us hits him head on. I see his limp body in the middle of the road. We've just gotten word that the young child hit has passed away. Power later offers her personal condolences to the family. While we wait the villagers stare down our convoy, anger mixed with helplessness. What was your reaction on that day and moment? I think the worst day of my professional life. What can you say? You come here to try to help, to try somehow to offer words of condolences to the parents. The hardest thing I've ever done. The mother's face will stay in my dreams forever. Reporter: It's been two years since that infamous night when 300 schoolgirls were taken by the terror group, boko harm. 219 are still missing. E buslizabeth Joseph. Victoria William. Reporter: Early on, some managed a daring escape. There is not my real name. I use it for protection, and I'm one of the girls that escaped. Reporter: She and eight others are now here studying in the United States. Their code names and sunglasses their way of protecting themselves while in public. School was great until one day when the boko harm came in unexpected. Reporter: They say men with guns broke in and started yelling that they knew about the education they were getting. And all that said, everybody already knew they are boko harm. We didn't say anything because we are all scared. They have guns. They said if we run or we shout, they're going to shoot all of us. They start burning our clothes, our books, and everything. Reporter: They both say the fighters led them into the forest where they loaded them onto trucks. I was thinking since they're here, they're taking us somewhere. I'm going to die. Reporter: So both girls made the life or death decision to jump. I said god help me. I wanted to jump, maybe, maybe not. Me, I don't know. I would rather fall down out of the truck and die than to go with them, because if I died here, my parents might have my body and bury it. Reporter: After a night hiding from boko harm in the forest, they finally make it back to your families. When I reach home my mom and family are crying. Reporter: She says the one night Traum tiegzed her so much it took a lot of convincing to get her to come to school here. Boko harm said if we go to school anywhere and they find out, they'll kill us and our family. I was scared and I told her I'm not going to school anymore. I'm done with school. Reporter: Now both girls are studying in the U.S. Looking to the future. But they miss the families they left behind. I was so worried about my family. I know that I'm safe here, I'm okay, but it's not safe for my family back there in Nigeria. Reporter: Their loved ones are okay for now, and we were able to track down blessing eegs father when we were there. Do you want to hear what he says? He went us back with a message for his daughter who he hasn't seen in over a year. Give her a message. I want her to be a doctor. And study. Reporter: Is your daughter a strong person? He said you're a strong woman. Are you? I hope so. Reporter: They say they must be strong for their friends that are missing. The video triggering a lot of emotions. I recognize their faces and they're my classmates, so I was just crying. I just wish I could talk to them. They might feel maybe people don't care about them. No one go and look for them, but I wish I can tell them that we still love them and I wish I could tell them how much we miss them here. I just wanted to tell the world that we'll never forget about those girls that are in the captivity. We are no longer just children from Nigeria. They are global citizens. Reporter: In Nigeria their new president brought hope in the search for the missing girls. But while the world awaiting their homecoming, perhaps the best revenge against boko harm is an education.
