Jordan was just 17 years old when she managed to escape the clutches of her abusive parents, David and Louise Turpin, back in 2018.

In footage shared recently, the terrified teen can be seen speaking to a police officer, who has responded to her call, on a street corner in California.

She explains that she was somehow able to get out of the house without her parents' knowing after they chained two of her sisters to a bed.

During the clip, Jordan, now 21, showed the officer a photo of her bruised sisters, which she had taken before fleeing.

She tells the cop: "I just ran away from home. And I live in a family of 15.

"My two little sisters right now are chained up."

When asked where they are chained up, Jordan explains that it was to the bed.

"Now, mother didn't chain them up just to be mean. OK," she explains.

"They're chained up because they stole mother's food."

During the conversation, Jordan is clearly scared and uncomfortable speaking to a police officer, explaining to him that she's never spoken to a stranger by herself before.

After she shows him the photo of her sisters tied up, the cop tells Jordan to make sure that she doesn't delete it, which she says she won't do.

Jordan and her siblings were later removed from their parents' home.

David and Louise were then arrested and later sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Speaking recently about their traumatic experience, Jordan and her sister Jennifer said they owed a lot to Justin Bieber.

Jennifer were speaking to ABC News's Diane Sawyer last month when she made the shock revelation.

She explained: "I don't know where we would be if we didn't watch Justin Bieber.

"Sometimes, especially when we were younger, my mother and father would leave. 

"The older ones would sneak in and turn on the TV. 

"So we would see music videos and stuff, and that's where we learned a lot. I would watch a lot of Justin Bieber.

"I started realising that there is a different world out there. I only knew one world and that was like always being there. 

"I was always like, 'I want to be out there. I want to be like that being free, not being trapped.'"
