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.
O Captain! My Captain! Rise up and hear the bells.
Rise up, for you the flag is flung, for you the bugle trills.
For you bouquets and ribbon'd wreaths, for you the shores a-crowding.
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning.
