* ''ComicBook/{{Ironwood}}'' opens with Dave Dragavon hanging upside down from a tree with a rock tied around his neck. He has been like this for three days. Upon being released, he treats the whole incident as no more than a minor inconvenience (aside from [[RipVanTinkle a burning need to pee]]).



* In ''Film/BendOfTheRiver'', '''Creator/JamesStewart''', of all people, is one of these. References are made throughout the film to his past as a "border raider" during the Missouri-Kansas violence before UsefulNotes/TheAnericanCivilWar. At the end of the movie he's revealed to have somehow survived a hanging, with an ugly scar on his neck as the proof.
