"There's a couple hangin' from the rabbit in Wonderland Plaza! If you don't hurry they're gonna become zombie food!"
Otis Washington, Chop Till You Drop

Hanging by a Thread is an unmarked scoop in Dead Rising and a named scoop in Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop.

It takes place in Wonderland Plaza in the afternoon of the second day. It involves Nick Evans and Sally Mills, who are dangling from a giant inflatable rabbit in an attempt to get away from the attacking zombies below.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Frank arrives in Wonderland Plaza in the afternoon of the second day to find two survivors, Nick Evans and a Sally Mills desperately clinging onto the paws of an enormous inflatable Willamette bunny in between the Lovely Fashion House and Estelle's Fine-lady Cosmetics. They begin to yell for help as Frank approaches. A huge zombie horde has gathered below them. To save the survivors, Frank should kill all of the zombies in between the fence and the rabbit, then throw a fairly weak object at the survivors to make them fall, such as the hunk of meat among the newly killed zombies. Once they fall a brief conversation will ensue, and they will join Frank.
