A clip of Cleveland kidnapping survivor Michelle Knight's appearance on the Dr. Phil show has been released, with Knight revealing Ariel Castro tied her up by her hands, feet, and neck using an orange extension cord, and hung her on the wall. “I was tied up like a fish, an ornament on the wall," she says, per the Today show. "I was tied by my neck and my arms with the extension cord." Dr. Phil McGraw relays that she was left hanging there for days. The first of the two-part special will air tomorrow. "This is tragic story but it is also a story of inspiration and victory by a courageous young woman," McGraw tells the Plain Dealer. "America will absolutely love and embrace her."
