ALABAMA AGAIN SCANDAL
Shortly after the incident, the same state was the scene of a similar scandal. An Alabama man who was sentenced to death was kept at the execution desk for hours because the authorities could not find his intravenous line.

In the nitrogen hypoxia method, the prisoner breathes a gas such as nitrogen or helium instead of air. After about 17-20 seconds, the prisoner begins to lose consciousness, and within three seconds, breathing stops completely.
When the death sentence was announced, the 57-year-old man conveyed his request to the official authorities to be executed with ‘nitrogen hypoxia’, a method that was legally offered to him but never used in the USA before, instead of ‘poison injection’.
Miller’s ‘nitrogen hypoxia’ claim was only approved in 2018 due to legal processes. However, US District Judge R. Austin Huffaker changed the execution method to ‘poison injection’ due to problems in the legal procedure and determined the execution date.
THEY CANNOT FIND A VIN for HOURS
On the day of the execution, the authorities could not find an intravenous line in Miller’s arm, despite all their attempts for hours. It was decided to cancel the execution around 11:30 pm, after the prisoner’s arms were full of holes, who was already afraid of the ‘poison injection’ method and did not want to be executed in this way.

Although poison injection is an accepted method of execution in the USA, mishaps during execution in recent years have caused prisoners to die in agony.

The court published the definitive findings on John Grant’s execution in June, explaining that Grant vomited during the execution because his stomach was full.
