Actually you can live through a broken neck like Daggett does, which is to say you can live for a little bit before you die, hence the brief muffled whimpering. It's not always an instantaneous thing, just like a bullet to the head.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
