Sherlock Holmes (2009)

Question: Even though I have seen the movie five times, I still don't understand Holmes when he is explaining how Lord Blackwood survived the hanging, without any pulse. Could someone explain it to me?

Chosen answer: Blackwood took a chemical toxin that slowed the body's functions down to a very low level, far enough that he would appear dead even to the trained examiner. Watson pronounced him dead, then his body was placed within the prepared tomb. At some point after that he returned to normal function as the toxin wore off.

Answer: He survived the hanging because there was a fish hook near where the knot of the rope was that Blackwood was hung by.
