As Chris rightly points out, according to French grammatical rules, the noun victime is feminine so everything referring to it in this sentence will be feminine too, e.g. La victime était terrifiée par son expérience .
Should the person be named in the following sentence, all would agree in gender too, which could be masculine or feminine.
This is the wonderful world of French grammar where an inanimate object can be a subject and a person an object, and let's not mention the world of insects which seem to lose one gender altogether!
Hope this helps!
