10 people who survived their execution – You will be shocked to see how they survived (+Photos)

People who survived their execution: The existence of time is very important in human lives. It seems sometimes that ‘Time’ has its own whims. The following people are those who were sentenced to death by humans but time made its own judgement and said ‘your time is not up yet!’ so they lived in spite of all human effort to the contrary.  A list of 10 people who survived their execution astonishingly:


10. Elizabeth Proctor (1652-Unknown)

In the Salem Witch Trials (1692-93), Elizabeth Proctor along with her her husband was accused of practising witchcraft and after a trial was sentenced to death. Elizabeth was pregnant and therefore was granted a stay of execution until after the birth of her baby. Her husband was executed on August 19, 1692. Salem Witch Trials was a big sensational story back then. Soon the Governor intervened and ordered 153 people (who were wrongly convicted without hard evidence) to be freed. Elizabeth was among those released.

9. John Henry George Lee (1864 – Circa 1945)

John Lee was convicted of murdering his employer, Miss Emma Keyse by clubbing her to death with an axe followed by slashing her throat with a knife and then setting her house on fire. He was sentenced to death by hanging. On the day of his hanging he was taken to the Exeter Prison. He was made to stand on the trap door, beneath which his dead corpse would have been hanging, had the door not malfunctioned. They tried hanging him again but failed. After three failed attempts, the Home Secretary reduced John Lee’s sentence to life imprisonment.
