In the final 24 hours before the execution, a prisoner can be visited by several people, including family, friends, attorneys and spiritual advisors.
These visits take place in the death watch area or a special visitation room, and are halted sometime during that last day.
In the final few hours, several events take place in preparation for the execution.
Lethal injection and the electric chair are two of the methods used by executioners at the end of a prisoner's life.
Below are the steps followed before someone is finally executed;
1.The prisoner is searched in the purpose of seeing if he/she has a lethal weapon to commit suicide.
Then he/she is taken to death house(where execution will take place)
2.Here( in the death house) there is a toilet and everything needed and the prisoner is watched closely not to commit suicide.
3.The prisoner wakes up at 4.30 am at day of death for the pending issues to be solved.
4.They are allowed to spend some time with their families or even make their last calls for a goodbye.
