LOS ANGELES -- A Scientologist testified in a $30 million lawsuit Tuesday that she was too frightened to attempt an escape from cult deprogrammer Ted Patrick -- despite the fact she had several opportunities during her 38 days of captivity.

'I thought he would kill me,' said Paula Dain, her voice choked with emotion, during her second day of testimony in the federal lawsuit against Patrick and three others.

Miss Dain, who said she renounced her allegiance to Scientology only to convince Patrick to let her go, testified she was 'exhausted, very frightened and quite humiliated' by the deprogramming attempt.
