♪ >> welcome, we have an exciting show for all of you, let's get right to it. a store that shocked the nation when three girls escaped after a decade in captivity. here to talk about the exclusive with the first cleveland victim is our good friend, dr. phil. >> [ applause ] [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> welcome back, welcome back. >> all right, man! [ applause ] >> you know, dr. phil, we have had a lot of moments with you on our show where it's been light-hearted and we have had a lot of fun. but this story is so
harrowing, you know more about it than any of us. that, quite frankly, this is one of the saddest decories we have -- stories we have ever talked about on our show. >> it truly is, i have to say, travis, out of doing the dr. phil show, now in our 12th year, that this one single interview changed me more than any interview i have done in 12 years. and -- >> wow. >> and the interview is with michelle knight. she - as you know - is one of the three girls taken by this monster, ariel castro. she was the first taken. she was there for the longest over 11 years. i think she was probably the most severely abused because of a lot of rage that he had towards her. and it's just ... huh, to sit down with her and she blows up so many myths about what was out there in the media about this story. and to hear this person
talking, knowing what she's been through, was just a life-changing event. >> michelle had so much to endure over the years. she was helt captive. here's a clip from the interview with dr. phil. >> when you were down there, á was it generally in the dark? >> there was no light. no light at all. >> and you ... just laid on the concrete floor in the dark? >> well, it's kinda like being like this. because i couldn't lay down. because the pole would hold me up. >> because of the chain around your neck. were you able to sleep some . >> no, i mainly passed out from the chain being around my neck. ♪ >> wow. that's -- [ audience oohs ] >> unspeakable. >> it's just scratching the surface. understand, he put her in this basement and chained her to this pole. and the pole, you are seeing
it right now, and he used a filthy, despicable basement. it's up north, cold on the concrete. she couldn't lay down. he has a chain around her neck that has this much play in it; he has a chain around her waist. and he has her wear a motor cycle helmet. a full helmet that comes all the way down with a mask, with the chains, and she is completely in the dark. and her eyes deteriorate across time, because for long periods of time during this 11 years, she's kept in the dark. he hit her in the side of her head with barbells and blew out her eardrums. [ audience oohs ] >> oh, man. >> the helmet, was that to keep her from yelling? >> i think in part. it was, again, a safety thing for him that she couldn't get anything over her head.
it did muffle cries that she might have had, and so she's sitting up and can't lay down, and she's just sitting on this cold concrete. and you know, one of the things that i learned in talking with michelle, a lot of people believe her to be mentally incapacicated. her mother said she had mental disabilities in the police report or is quoted in the police report as saying that; um, that she was intellectually disabled. and let me tell you, nothing could be further from the truth. this young woman is bright; she is sharp; she is a survivor! it's just astounding to me that, instinctively, instinctively what she's telling me about exchanges she had with him are consistent with what trained negotiators
for homeland security and fbi, use in hostage negotiations with captors. just instinctively shoe knew what to do -- she knew what to do to stay alive and keep herself moving. it's just terrible. >> it is. and she's such a survivor. she makes us all think of what you can do if you have to. and one of the things she has is a piercing, one in the nose and one in the lip now. i know she was captive for 10 years so this is something she's done since she was out. is there significance to that. >> she had piercings when she was taken and he used those to torture her. he would twist them and tear them out of her. she had to get rid of them, because she knew he would use them to torture her. now that she's out, she has done a few of those things because it's a symbol of freedom, the symbol of the ability to make a choice and
not be punished for the choice. >> i like that. >> and how is she coping in terms of health? when you are in confinement, it's worse than confinement in a prison because she's malnourished, no natural light. so she probably has almost absent vitamin d levels, the kinds of things important for a woman of that age to develop properly. and this is something that could theoretically affect her in terms of her health for the rest of her life. >> she is still having problems. she has problems with her eyes and hearing. she went in and she guesses she was 120. she came out at 75. so, 45 pounds, a high percentage for her. [ audience oohs ] >> because she's a tiny thing. and when he first took her, he lured her to the home. she knew him. he was the father of a friend of hers. and he offered her a ride to
social services because she was making efforts to regain custody of her son, lost not because of anything she had done; and he -- that's when he took her. and she said i will give you a ride over there. and i actually have a litter of puppies at horges would you like -- home, would you like one to give to her son? he lures her into the house. and then ... he gets her into a room and she says, i want to leave. and he said: i am sorry you can't leave. >> and he just knocks her out. and hangs her on the wall. >> and michelle told dr. phil some pretty horrific details about what went on during the 11 years of captivity. we will talk about one of the most disturbing things that happened in that home later in the show. will you stick around for that, dr. phil? and the other lesson here is one that a lot of people don't
realize, is that, a lot of times, violence, when it occurs, it occurs with someone you actually know. in this situation, that's no different. here's a look at what's coming up next. >> announcer: coming up next. >> the thing that i am most concerned about is a discolored mole. >> a concerned sister's cry for help. >> my mother passed a few months ago from a squamous cell. i look at my sister and i have a great fear of losing her, too. >> the two lesions, they have a number of red-flag signs. >> dr. ordon gives his diagnosis. >> dr. ordon, you have the biopsy results yet? >> announcer: that's later! >> coming tomorrow. before you set foot on a plane. >> dr. sears here with airplane travel sickness tips. >> you need to see this. >> and ... >> i have wounds on my belly and groin, basically in my
