(ABC News) – Michelle Knight, of one three Cleveland women who survived a decade of imprisonment and torture, was tied by her hands, feet and neck and hung on the wall by her captor, she told Dr. Phil McGraw in an interview airing this week.
In a clip released today, Dr. Phil asked Knight what captor Ariel Castro used to tie her up once he had abducted her.
“One of those orange extension cords,” Knight said. “I was tied up like a fish, an ornament on the wall. That’s the only way I can describe it. I was hanging like this,” she said, motioning with her hands to indicate that she was hanging sideways on the wall with her feet and head at the same heights. “I was tied by my neck and my arms with the extension cord.”
Knight will be the first of the three women to publicly tell her story with a two-part appearance on Dr. Phil show, which will air on Tuesday and Wednesday.
