2. Wenseslao Moguel (Circa 1880)
Captured while fighting in the Mexican revolution and sentenced to death without a trial in 1915, Moguel survival story is unbelievable. He was shot 9 times by the firing squad, the 9th bullet passed right through his head at close range to insure his death. But Moguel, not only somehow survived, he also managed to escape from prison. He came on the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not radio show in 1937. In the above photo Moguel is seen pointing to the scar made by the bullet wound.
