Transcript for Mother of 'Slender Man' Victim Describes First Moment in Hospital
Thanks for that. Turn now to the slenderman case. Story that shocked parents across this country. A 12-year-old girl stabbed by her two friends, left to die in her friends. Saying they were following orders from slenderman, the fictional character. And now speaking out to David Muir. I walked into the trauma room that she was in. She was pale as a ghost. Terrified, crying, she couldn't breathe. But she saw you there. She saw me and put her hand out. And I rushed over and hugged her. And I said you're going to be okay. It's going to be fine. But I could see that she was covered -- her arms and her legs and her abdomen, they were covered in stab wounds. And all I hear is, there's five on her arm, seven on her leg. And I'm thinking, seven, what? And one of the nurses says, all right, I count 19. And the second nurse said I count 19 as well. Where on Earth do you think she got the strength to crawl out of those woods? We asked her, and she said I wanted to live. The whole incredible story on ""20/20" tomorrow night. You're going to meet the girl. That's 10:00/9:00 central on ABC.
