Hanging was a method of execution used on Earth and other worlds. Often hanging involved having the condemned stand on a platform. A rope was placed around the condemned's neck and the platform was removed, or a door was opened underneath the condemned allowing him or her to drop several feet. Death occured when either the person's neck was broken or the person was asphyxiated.
