The closest thing I can think of is someone's head coming off during a hanging. If the rope is too long, it can happen that they're jerked to a halt so quickly that the head could come off.

So the necessary force is some multiple of body weight. That's a lot of force to apply at short range by hand.

I'm not sure I'd say it's totally impossible. There's always those freak alignments of circumstance that might make it the one-in-a-million outcome.

The problem is that it sounds like this guy is a million one-in-a-million outcomes. After a certain number of these, I stop being willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.
