Hanging is one of the most common methods of suicide in India in which death of the individual occurs almost immediately. However, a few cases have been reported in literature in which death has occurred after a certain period of time or the patient has survived after prolonged resuscitative measures. Here we present three cases of delayed deaths due to suicidal hanging in which the victims survived for variable time duration after they were rescued from hanging.
