Spanish word for snap/break

I was watching a movie (The Mummy, I think) and there was a scene where they hung someone. When the guy started to swing on the rope, someone said "Su cuello no past-tense-verb". I guessed the phrase to be "Your neck didn't snap" - but I forgot the verb before I had a chance to look in the dictionary. Can someone please offer a suggestion a to what verb could have been used there? It was not romper. Thanks.

I think in that context, they might say "romper" ("rompio").

Could the verb be "partir" (the word being partió)'
