Overkill I  
1999 Urban Legend

In France, Jacques Lefevrier left nothing to chance when he decided to commit suicide.

But the best-laid schemes o' mice and men go oft awry.

The bullet missed Jacques Lefevrier completely and cut through the rope above him. Now, freed from the threat of hanging he plunged into the sea.

Where he died of hypothermia.
