They had a knife on my throat and started slicing but I survived, woman nearly beheaded by ISIS narrates her story.

 
Traci Johnson watched the San Bernardino play out and it brought back terrifying memories for the 44-year-old.

She lived through her own workplace nightmare when an ISIS sympathizer actually tried to cut off her head.

According to police, Alton Nolen, a radicalized Muslim convert, had argued with Traci at their job at a food processing plant in Oklahoma. Nolen stormed out of the building but came back a few hours later and was armed. His first victim was Colleen Huffard, who he decapitated. Then he went after Traci.

“I am going through what these people are going through and I’m going through this for the rest of my life,” she said. “I heard screams like bloody murder screams is what I heard. And I didn’t know what the heck was going on I thought it was kind of a joke at first and then to come and find out it wasn’t a joke. It was serious.”

She thought she was going to die and recounted the horror, saying: “He's right there at the other end of the hall. And just run right at me and just started slicing my neck.”

Traci's boss heard her cries for help; he was a Deputy Sherriff and had his gun. He shot Traci's attacker incapacitating him. The ISIS sympathizer survived and now, a year later, he is awaiting trial. His now deleted Facebook page was rife with ISIS propaganda, including gruesome videos of beheadings.
