The girl on the other end of this 911 call is Lisa Floyd. During this call, she is in tears as she begs the dispatcher to send the police because her stepfather is beating her mother. Everything she says is horrifying to listen to. Fortunately for her, this wasn’t the end of Lisa’s story. Though things got worse before they got better.
Years after this tape was first recorded, Kit Gruelle, an advocate for domestic abuse survivors, was curios as to what had happened to Lisa. Kit tracked her down. She found Lisa, but, unfortunately, Lisa was in her own abusive relationship. With Kit’s help, Lisa was able to work her way out of it.
Lisa found out about the tape. She had no idea this tape would be used to educate people about the effects of domestic violence on children.
Lisa shared her story On the Children of Domestic Violence blog
“I’m Lisa, a survivor with a future, because of my past. I started to believe I wasn’t worthy. I felt like a failure, destined for nothingness. I didn’t believe I could change my life or my situation.”
She moved into a relationship but the relationship turned abusive. She put up with it for years, but eventually able broke away. She attributes a lot of that to “people who have entered my life during this transition. The ones who took the time to encourage and nurture my growth.”
She goes on to say “My journey isn’t over – I still have many lessons to learn and obstacles to overcome. I’m just not afraid to take them on.” I think it is important for people to remember. You aren’t stuck where you are. You are simply facing an obstacle you need to overcome. With the help of people who care about you and your own belief that you have worth, you can survive.”
Listen to the video below, it is very shocking and may upset some people, but do remember that the girl in it is on the right path to finding safety and happiness in her life.
