Elizabeth Smart — who survived being kidnapped and raped when she was just 14 years old — told CBS that a man sexually assaulted her on a plane last year.

“I called up my husband and I was saying, ‘Do I just have, like, a big badge on my forehead that says, “Easy prey” or “victim,” because I am sick of it,’” Smart told “CBS This Morning” co-anchor Gayle King in a segment broadcast on Thursday.

“I've always felt safe on an airplane,” Smart said. “I've never been worried. I've never felt threatened on an airplane. Until now.”
