VIDEO: Live TV shooting survivor recounts fatal attack

The only survivor of the massacre captured on live television last month in Virginia was most fearful the gunman would shoot her in the head, she said in an exclusive interview.

The interview aired Tuesday on Fox News’ "On The Record" with Greta Van Susteren.

Vicki Gardner, executive director of the Smith Mountain Lake Chamber of Commerce, was being interviewed on August 26 by WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward when former television station employee Vester Flanagan walked up and opened fire.

Gardner said the whole incident happened "very, very fast" and the only thing she could think of was to quickly drop to the ground as if she had been shot and play dead.

"I was waiting for him to shoot me in the head," she said.
