Sentenced to death for murder, American Alan Eugene Miller surprised his executioners by surviving at least 18 lethal injection attempts. According to the Daily Star, the man will be subjected to an execution method unheard of in the state of Alabama that involves the use of nitrogen gas.
Alan was sentenced to death row after shooting to death three people at his workplace in the city of Birmingham.
The failed execution attempts took place on September 22 of this year. At the time, the medical team was unable to find a vein to inject the lethal liquid into the detainee. According to Alan’s lawyers, he writhed in pain and anguish during the proceedings.
“Mr. Miller could feel his veins being pushed into his body by needles. Nauseated, disoriented, confused and scared to know if he was about to be killed… blood was leaking from some of his wounds – described the defense.
After lawyers filed a federal lawsuit, the state of Alabama decided that Alan will not be subjected to another lethal injection attempt. Instead, the prisoner will be executed via nitrogen hypoxia, a method considered more humane, but which has not yet been used in the state.
In this case, the prisoner is forced to breathe pure nitrogen gas through a mask, which fatally reduces blood oxygen levels.
