Marina Chapman spent five years of her childhood being raised in the jungle by a colony of monkeys.
Marina had been abandoned in the jungles of Colombia by kidnappers and ended up learning how to catch rabbits and birds with her bare hands in order to survive. Eventually she was discovered by hunters who sold her to a brothel from which she later escaped. She spent several years on the streets before being finally taken in to work as a maid for a family in her mid-teens.
