An Austrian woman claims she's been kept prisoner in a dungeon by her own father for 24 years and had seven of his children.

Police say she'd been abused since the age of 11.

The man's wife had no idea what was going on.

The case only came to light when one of the children, now a teenager, became

seriously ill.
