Choking game kills - Warning

Last week a 12 year old "very happy little boy" from West Sacramento died. He was found with a shoesting around his neck. warns:

Most children have no clue how dangerous this activity is. Most parents have no clue that kids are doing this until someone in their lives dies or is damaged by it.
What is the Choking Game?

The Choking Game achieves a brief high or euphoric state by stopping the flow of oxygen containing blood to the brain.

The danger becomes even greater when a ligature is used and the activity is performed by a lone child. If the child loses consciousness and there is no one there to IMMEDIATELY release the pressure, he is unable to help himself. The child will suffer brain damage and death certainly after three minutes. Some of those who have died were alone for as little as 15 minutes before someone found them and it was already too late. suggests a few warning signs:

Any suspicious mark on the side of the neck, sometimes hidden by means of a turtleneck, a scarf or a permanently turned-up collar.

Changes in personality, such as overly aggressive or agitated.

Any kind of strap, a rope or a belt lying about near the child without any reason – questions about such objects are often eluded.

Headaches, sometimes excruciatingly bad ones, loss of concentration, a flushed face.

Bloodshot eyes or any other noticeable signs of stress on the eyes.

A thud in the bedroom or against a wall – meaning a fall in cases of solitary practices.
Any questions about the effects, sensations or dangers of strangulation.

Choking Game aliases: Blackout, Fainting Game, Space Monkey, Dream Game, Suffocation Roulette, Pass-out Game, Flat liner, California Choke, Space Cowboy, Airplaning, Purple Dragon and many more.
