Dead Rising Scoops

Hanging By A Thread is an unannounced scoop in Dead Rising. In Dead Rising:Chop Till You Drop it was given the name Hanging By A Thread.[2]

Nick Evans and Sally Mills are holding on to the paws of an enormous inflatable Willamette bunny in Wonderland Plaza, 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.
