(CBS 8) - CBS news correspondent, Lara Logan, was sexually assaulted and beaten while covering the turmoil in Egypt. The attack happened in February and now she is breaking her silence about the horrific experience to "60 Minutes."
News 8's Steve Price files this video report on Logan's first on-camera interview since her horrific attack. Logan tears up telling her story, which she wants to share because as she put it, "this happens to women and it's wrong."
Lara Logan: "Our camera battery went down. We had to stop for a moment and suddenly Baha looked at me and said, 'We've got to get out of here. Baha is not happy here.' He's Egyptian."
"60 Minutes"/Scott Pelley: "He speaks Arabic and he can hear what the crowd is saying?"
Pelley: "He understands what no one else in the crew understands?"
Logan: "That's right. I thought, ‘Not only am I going to die here, but it's going to be a torturous death that's going to go on forever and ever and ever.'"
Logan says a mob of 2 to 3 hundred men in Tahrir Square ripped her clothes off, beat and sexually assaulted her for more than 40 minutes.
The mother of two young children thought she'd never see her kids again.
"When I thought ‘I'm going to die here', my next thought was ‘I can't believe I just, I just let them kill me. That was as much fight as I had, that I just gave in and I gave up on my children so easily. How could you do that? How could you do that? I thought you were stronger than that?'"
Logan was finally rescued by a group of Egyptian women and soldiers who drove her and her "60 Minutes" team back to their hotel.
Logan returned to the U.S. the next day and was immediately taken to a hospital where she spent the next four days recovering before finally coming home to her children.
Now, two and a half months after the attack and talking publicly for the first time, Logan admits she has a fear in her that she's never had before, but she also says she is determined to not let that stop her.
Check out more on her interview at the "60 Minutes" website. Logan says this will be her only on-camera interview about the attack.
