Deadly Game Claiming Teen Lives

Thinkstock

It’s a horrific thought: you come home to find your teenage son or daughter dead.  These days, when we hear about a teen death, drugs almost immediately come to mind.  But according to the Wichita Falls Police Department, a deadly game is also claiming teen lives all across America.

Officer Jeff Hughes says the ‘choking game’ is claiming lives and parents need to get educated.

“The Choking Game is a misunderstood activity causing death and suffering for thousands of families worldwide. It often begins with high-achieving teens choking each other as a way to get high without the risk of getting caught with drugs or alcohol. It ends with thousands of kids dying or suffering permanent brain damage each year”, says Hughes in a press statement.

“Set up by families of Choking Game victims, GASP (Games Adolescents Shouldn’t Play) is a global nonprofit campaign that fights this “game” with the most powerful weapon at our disposal: education. Most people have no idea how dangerous the choking game is until it hits close to home—but we can prevent suffering by publicizing the danger in our schools and homes. “

Here are the details on the class:
