It's the first time amanda has been seen since the day before her 17th birthday. And this brave call to 911 was the first time anyone would hear her voice in more than a decade. Help me, I'm amanda berry. Do you need police, fire or ambulance. I need police. What's going on there. I've been kidnapped and I've been here for ten years. Stay there with those neighbors and talk to the police when they get there. Okay. Reporter: It was just before 6:00 in the evening when a neighbor, charles ramsey, heard screams from inside this house on this block. Inside amanda berry, now 27, pounding on the door to escape. I saw it and you stuck. Just open the door. And she said, it's locked. Reporter: They tried to pry it open. It didn't work. So we had to kick open the bottom. Luckily on that door it was aluminum. It was cheap. She climbed out with her daughter. Reporter: Authorities won't confirm it's her daughter but carrying that daughter she runs and makes that 911 call and you can hear the fear that that man will return. We're gonna send them as soon as we get a car open. No, I need them now before he gets back. Reporter: And reveals something else. The girl amanda told police, I ain't the only one.
