PostSubject: The Choking Game   Tue Mar 01, 2011 3:58 pm

Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Friends who have a special kid in their lives... be sure you educate them on the dangers of this stupid game going around (and has been going around for a while now) called "The Choking Game"
Article Below:

Clovis Student Suffers Consequences of "Choking Game"

Clovis, Calif. (KMPH News) - For Shelle Foster, her son's broken teeth are the least of her worries. It's what he was doing when he busted his face that has her furious.

"Not only at the shock that another student put his hands around my son's neck," Foster said. "But, the fact that my son did not stand up for himself - it did not click in his brain that it was something that could take his life."

It's called, among other things, "the choking game."

13-year-old Corey Foster describes what happened the day he broke his teeth..."he told me to breathe in 20 times, and then hold it and he squeezed my neck."

The only thing Corey can remember is that it felt "weird". He says it happened in the boy's bathroom at Alta Sierra Intermediate last week.

KMPH News contacted Clovis Unified School District, but because the matter involves two minors the District would not say much. A spokeswoman said an investigation is underway; the district is taking disciplinary action.

Corey says the day he passed out was the third time he played the choking game.

"The guy who did it to me, he tried catching me," Corey said. "He was laughing so much - he dropped me, I hit the floor and busted my teeth."

Corey's sister Staci says her brother isn't the only one playing it at school.

"They are doing it on the concrete at school during lunch," Staci Foster said.

Dr. Jeff Gardner at the Clovis Medical Group described the game as an attempt by teens to cut off blood flow to the brain. But, added that it can be a deadly game.

Dr. Gardner says there are two things parents need to look out for.

"You might see broken blood vessels in the eyes or around the cheek or nose area," Dr. Gardner said. "Certainly, you may want to inquire if you see any kind of bruising or marks around their throat."

Corey's mom said she didn't look for the signs because she'd never heard of the choking game.

"They are calling this the 'good kids' game... because there are no drugs, there's no alcohol, there's no sex. So, they think it's another way to get high, rush or whatever it is," Mrs. Foster said.

These days Corey has very little to smile about. His parents are looking at $14,000 in dental bills.

"What you see now is only just a filling," Mrs. Foster said.

His two front teeth will have to be extracted and replaced with implants. Mrs. Foster says she's just grateful her son is alive.

"I could be burying my son right now," Mrs. Foster said.

The Foster family says it will ask the Clovis Unified School District to start educating students about the dangers of the choking game.

"These kids need to realize this is not anything to ever play with," Foster said.

Kids hear about this stuff from their parents I would think.....when I was in school, and I am talking more than 30 years ago.....the game was to hold your breath as to pass out....they thought THAT was a cool game to do.....I am guessing kids today had to one-up their parents......there are a lot of stupid, STUPID things kids are doing today and someone needs to wake them up......They are even smoking bath salts and plant fertilizer crystals....how stupid is THAT???? Huh?

Children could be surely stupid; but some parents are more stupid than their children. Huh?

This has actually been cause for an assembly in the middle school here. It was a couple of years ago, and they heard that it was being "played" as a game at a birthday party.
Several kids passed out and 911 was called. They recovered but got into alot of trouble.

You just can't educate your kids enough these days and parents have to be informed too. I don't even leave spray paint or other cans like that out. I don't want to treat my teens as if they are 2yr olds but I don't want to know I left it out to be easily used either.
Hopefully I have smart kids. So far I think I do.

pray

If I was cynical, I might say that this is nature's way of thinning the herd. I might say that it's natural selection in action. If I was cynical. Good thing I'm not.
