Hanged man comes back to life.. and awaits death
No double jeopardy for an Iranian drug dealer who was hanged last week, but survived his execution.
The family of the 37-year old man found him alive when they went to claim his body at the morgue the next day.
Prison officials don't get it.
They say they carried out the execution by the book.
Did the weight and drop calculation, left him hanging for 12-minutes.
A doctor declared the man dead.
Now he's in a hospital being nursed back to health so he can be hanged again.
A government official says the sentence was death by hanging and they intend to make sure it happens.
Amnesty International has urged Iran to show mercy.
