Yassiem Harris and Sandra Smith were positioned one in front of the other, on painted footprints over the divide of the trap and held by warders while the hangman placed the nooses around their necks. He then turned down the hood flaps and when all was ready, pulled the lever plummeting them through the huge trapdoors. They were left to hang for 15 minutes before being stripped and examined by a doctor in the room below.
Fox Business Network's Sandra Smith says her time on the LSU track & field team helped her achieve success in TV. "It challenges you, it makes you smarter, it makes you more aggressive," Smith said of being a college athlete, in the final part of our 3-part Media Beat interview with her. In the interview, Smith also explains why she isn't on Twitter or Facebook.
