Tightly tied at the elbows and the wrists Josh and Jake lay of the floor, next to each other as their ankles were tied.
Grabbed by their hair and forced to their knees, a long rope went between their bound wrists, under their crouch, and around their waist. Pushed face down again, a long steel pipe was pushed under their upper arms and between their backs. Each of their biceps was roped to it - where their arms touched they too were tied to each others.
Jake's legs were pulled back and his ankles tied to Josh's neck, while Josh's legs were tied off to Jake's neck. Where their shins overlapped, they were tightly tied together with rope.
Their sweat soaked shirts were cut off of their bodies. Torn into two pieces, one served as a blindfold while the other was shoved into their mouths. Rope was tied around the blindfold and between their teeth, keeping their blindfold and gag tightly in place.
Their kidnappers packed up, and left the two friends unable to move without choking each other.

The Cortez brothers were bound at the elbows and wrists with a strong nylon rope behind their backs. A knotted bandanna gagged them. Duct tape covered their eyes and mouths.
They lay on their arms in the back of a pick up truck.
They had been forced to strip to the waist, empty their pockets into their shirts, and leave them in the barn to prove they had been abducted.
One of their abductors stood guard over the boys. He kept tracing the butt of his rifle over their chests and abs and jutting it into their navels. Every now and then he would fire a shot into the air, terrifying the brothers -shivering -breaking out into a cold sweat even though the hot sun beat down on their bound torsos.
They drove the bound boys through all the back roads for some 80 miles until the reached their destination.... an abandoned ranch.
Inside was an old coal pit.
The dragged me out of the truck.
They ripped the tape off of my eyes and showed me the coal
pit. I began to shiver again. They roped up my biceps
and lashed my arms into my back with ropes surrounding
Taking a lighter, the melted the knots that tied me up
They tied my feet and kicked me to the ground.
Using a long rope tied to me feet that dropped me
down into the pit, head first.
I lay there, chocking on the coal dust.
staring up at me -- his eyes wide with terror.
I tried to resist only to be gut punched into
submission and they roped my upper amrs
Melting the knots scorched the hairs on my arms
and burned my skin.
They lowered me down and I collapsed on top of my younger brother.
We looked at the terror in each other eyes as the lowered down the last of us.
They took photos of us -- a pile of brothers completely helpless.
Then the put the cover of the pit.
We were plunged into darkness left to gag scream knowing that nobody could hear us.
