Interview with Michael Smith
QUESTION 26
TERRY ROCKEFELLER:

Tell me what happened to you. You were sitting in the circle?

MICHAEL SMITH:

Yes.

TERRY ROCKEFELLER:

Okay, how were you chosen? How were you-?

MICHAEL SMITH:

The, ah, hostages were all together in, in one area, very close on the ground on mattresses and we had our, ah, had blindfolds on and had our wrists bound and the, ah, inmate, err, the hostages that were to be taken to the catwalk, ah, to be executed were chose randomly. The inmates reached into the group of hostages and pulled us by the, ah, binding and if they got a hold of your wrist then you were one of the hostages that were taken to the catwalk. I was one of the hostages taken to the catwalk. Ah, once at the catwalk, once on the catwalk, some of the hostages were standing and, ah, I was given a chair to sit down and made as comfortable as possible. I was also given a drink of water. Ah, where are we going now, Terry?
