8. Zoleykhah Kadkhoda (1977)
In Iran a young woman named Zoleykhah Kadkhoda was charged of adultery and sentenced to death by stoning. Kadkhoda was buried up to her waist but soon after the stoning began there was a sharp disapproving reaction from the villagers. Never-the-less the stoning went on and by the time it stopped Kadkhoda was thought to be dead and her corpse was taken to the morgue. Arriving there, they soon discovered that she was breathing and was rushed to the hospital. Zoleykhah Kadkhoda survived that day to tell her story.
