I think any person would have done that first, and probably jump down the hole, not just climb down. Unless it was twisted or something were he couldn't take it off, but it looked like he was able to.
That's a fair point. But have a look at the pictures (particularly the first video I provided as it shows images), It can clearly be seen the cord is fully stretched as It's hung from the nail and from being around his neck.
And Another fair point, I know I myself would probably jump down if I could, but from going from the video, It was a small hole, It's not like he could exactly jump down it.
Also, let's not forget he doesn't even seem to know what just happened here (I believe he blacked out for a couple of seconds while he was being attacked). He didn't even know he had something around his neck until he felt It there after all.
And yes, I believe the witnesses whom were there, as well as wheatcraft himself, say It was actually twisted around his neck.
