CLEVELAND -- "You saved us, you saved us!"

Those are the words Cleveland patrolwoman Barb Johnson says are the first out of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight.

She was one of the first responding officers to the Seymour Avenue home after Berry escaped years of captivity at the hand of Ariel Castro.

"I didn't ask a lot of questions, I just let them talk," Johnson recalls as the first person to testify in Castro's sentencing hearing Thursday morning.

Johnson says all three women were pale when she first saw them.

Additionally, Johnson said Berry told her how Knight helped her give birth in the home.

Castro, who pleaded guilty last week to more than 900 counts in the case, faces life behind bars without parole plus 1,000 years.
