TULSA, Oklahoma -

On October 25, 2011, Jessica Buchanan was kidnapped at gunpoint by Somali land pirates. She was held prisoner for 93 days until members of SEAL Team Six attacked the heavily armed pirates, killing them and bring Jessica and a colleague to safety.

Buchanan will be the feature speaker at the upcoming Juliet Low Leadership Society luncheon. You can hear her at a luncheon from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.at the Southern Hills Country Club on Thursday, April 16.

She shared her ordeal with Six in the Morning anchor LeAnne Taylor. She said it was the darkest time in her life, and several times she was afraid she would not survive.

Her responsibility to her family - and her experiences in the Girl Scouts - helped her survive.

Watch the video to meet Buchanan and hear more about her ordeal. You can also read her book: "Impossible Odds: The Kidnapping of Jessica Buchanan and Her Dramatic Rescue By SEAL Team Six.
