Most of us don't want to think about the possibility of being kidnapped, let alone having to devise an escape plan. Abduction is a terrifying crime, and though reasonably rare, it happens often enough that it's useful to know the basics of escaping a kidnapper.
Many abductees have escaped horrifying situations, even after they've been beaten, assaulted, and in one case dismembered and left for dead. Humans are surprisingly resilient, and our determination to live is often impressive when push comes to shove. If you're not able to avoid being kidnapped, the way you react and conduct yourself throughout the situation may just save your life.
