Suicide by Broken neck (“Drop hanging”)


Rope. A high length is not important. Choose enough for a “Hangman’s knot” , and fixing at the wall, stable pipe etc..
* A stable point of connection, high enough to stand on a tiltable chair, footstool etc. with the noose around your neck.
* A Ladder. At least you need a minimum fall of 1.2m (47″ ) up to 1.8m (71″).
   Please note, you need to add your body length!
   For example, minimum height of 1.2m (47″) + 1.8m (71″) = 3m (118″). You could deduct 25 cm (~10″) for the head.
   But “1.2m (47″)” is the absolute minimum. With too low height, you risk to die from strangulation instead a broken neck.
* Maybe a Suicide Note (gladly also here public in the “Suicide Bulletin” in “Message Board”).
Mention this website is welcome (look at “Media”).

1. Knot a “Hangmans’s knot”:

2. Place a suicide note, and gladly a reference to this website beside yourself (look at “Media”).
3. Go up to the ladder (or a comparable high place), and attach the rope to a stable point.
4. Place the loop around your neckand tighten the noose.
5. Jump.

If you live alone, or 
the place is isolated and lonely, then use a delayed email delivery (like,
or send a paper letter.
