It is a miracle.
Usually the survivors after the execution of the offender repeated the procedure are not subjected to. No wonder it is the key word in the sentence is “death”, which means the inevitability of the onset of reckoning and the inevitability of execution of the awarded penalties.
In the past the fact that the criminal managed to stay alive after the execution of capital punishment was considered not only as the Providence of God, that is considered proof of innocence, sent from above. Below are six true stories about people who were able to stay alive against the law, even just nenadolgo.

Because of this, the rope has ceased to slide. Before you throw the noose on the neck of the convict, and the executioner had to put his foot into the loop and pull with all his strength to move firmly stuck node. Then would-be executioner tried to fix the noose around the neck of the Franks, but despite all efforts, he failed to make it as tight as it should.
In the end, from Frank sent the support, but after three minutes of unsuccessful attempts to choke, he began to twitch, begging to end the suffering and kill him finally. And since his hands were as tightly bound as the neck, it was not difficult to catch up and slide the rope from the throat, to curse the organizers of the penalty for their “hack”. Finally one of the employees cut the rope, and the long-suffering victim of justice with a dull thud met with a solid ground, as no one had thought to spread him something soft.
Needless to say that after seeing no one wanted to bring the case to the end, and the Franks reduced the sentence, replacing it with imprisonment, and the Executive authority of the new monarchical leadership of Fiji has become the subject of ridicule around the world.
