Fatal 13 year old Andrew
Andrew was the sunshine in every single life he touched. He was in the 8th grade and on the football team. His grades were good and he had an amazing network of friends. He loved to play his Xbox and race his go kart. He was the light of our lives. I never before met a 13 year old boy who was as openly affectionate to his parents and friends, even in public, as Andrew. He never let an opportunity to show love pass him by and we have all learned from him. We have lost a huge part of our lives by losing this precious child. Our only consolation is that he accepted Jesus and we know that we will see him again.

He was concerned about injustice, the environment and childhood obesity, ravenously researching ways to make the world a better place, using his music as his sword and shield. He was the kid who would talk to anyone in class and was always willin! g to listen and to reach out to others whether they needed a shoulder to cry on or help with math. Friends tell us that they miss Nick's arrival at school each morning, when he would start his happy morning dance and cajole others to join in. His wake and funeral services were attended by nearly 1000 friends, family members, current and former teachers, librarians and lunch room monitors.

Jess was a funny lad and has given us so many comical memories.As he was growing up he used to get himself into scrapes - being there at the wrong time sort of thing and used to say "it wasn't me mam". So angelic but I knew when he wasn't telling the whole story. He studied plumbing at Barnsley college and enjoyed it, he was also doing very well. He was a typical 17 year old, on computer games and out with mates, he loved socialising. He did well at school and had many friends. Jess also had two big brothers who he used to love winding up and visa versa and also tormented his little sister who gave as much back. He went to grandma and grandads every day, they were a big part of his life. We're going to miss you so much Jess, always. xxxxxx

I was not aware of this type of activity and didn't notice warning signs, until July 10, 2009, when my husband discovered our 17-year- old son Mack, dead in his bedroom. Mack was a bright, articulate, honors student; a fit and very active young man, who worked hard and participated in many activities including band, swimming, wrestling, football, rugby; he also hunted and fished and played lots of chess with his dad. He was very open with both of us and had friends all over the state. He had teachers, coaches and adult friends that he talked to often. He knew how to have fun and wasn't a risk-taker or an over-achiever, but a very competitive young man. My son was enjoying a great life and looking forward to so much more. Words cannot describe the devastation to his family, friends and community. MACKLIN PATRICK JENSEN group Facebook page

Hayley, my 14 year old daughter, was always against drugs/alcohol and aspired to go to college to become a doctor. One evening as we returned from a trip to Wal-Mart we found American Idol paused on the DVR. Nothing seemed out of the ‘norm’ until we hollered for Hayley to come upstairs and she never replied or came. My fiancé went down to get her and found her hanging by a dog leash from the ventilation ducts in our utility room. I arrived around the corner as he was cutting the home-made noose from her neck after he had tried to pull it from her life-less body with no avail. Our first thoughts were ‘suicide’ because we were totally unaware this ‘game’ existed. After looking at the circumstances surrounding Hayley’s death such as: live television paused as though she was planning on returning to watch it, feet touching the ground/knees bent, no note (which if you knew her was abnormal), and not a single sign that she was depressed, we wondered what had really happened. Then we began hearing of other youths in our small community playing the ‘choking game’ and we realized that Hayley must have been playing the game too. She is sorely missed by everyone who knew her! Her smile would light up a room!! Forever and Always Hayley's Mom

Fatal 13 year old Andrew F.
Andrew was loved by his fellow classmates and friends. He was a wrestler, honor student and played the viola in the school orchestra. He loved his friends. He was a good friend to many. I describe Andrew as a duck. Whenever people made fun of him, he just let it go like a duck repels water. He was a great brother and son. I sure miss my number one "little man".

Fatal 16 year old Matthew V.

Matthew was an outgoing boy who loved life, his family (esp. his baby sister), his job, and showed a sincere dedication to God. He was considering several options for his future, including the Air Force, business degree (wanted to manage the Dime Store he worked at) or Missionary Aviation. He wanted to be known as the "Candy Man" as his great grandpa was & had begun passing out candy to the young kids at church. He was sensitive and cared deeply. When we told him about a miscarried baby, he cried, wishing he had known I was pregnant so he could have prayed for the baby. He loved it when we came into the store to see him. He wore faith-centered rings, so others would ask him what they meant and he could share. As I write this it's almost 5 years since his death, and we still miss him daily, and all the "what could have beens". One of his brothers just recently wrote a song in memory of him. We keep him alive remembering the good times. We hope to keep others alive, sharing about the worst day of our lives - his death. Matthew's Story

Fatal 12 year old Tyler S.

Tyler was such an outgoing, vivacious kid. He never met anyone that he didn't like. He never slowed down! When he wasn't in school he was on his bike, his roller blades, or his skateboard. He was kind, generous and very affectionate. I miss hearing the door slam followed by him running through the house and hollering "Hey Mom!". Which was followed by him throwing himself at me and hugging me. He was my hero, my greatest admirer, and don\'t let anyone "mess" with mom! Each year his stocking is still stuffed, a place is set at the dinner table for him, both on Thanksgiving and Christmas. A new Christmas Tree ornament is purchased each year in his memory. These ornaments represent his brief life. The death of a child leaves a huge whole that the entire family must learn to navigate. This whole never heals, you just find different ways to work around it. He would be 20 now. I will never meet his first girlfriend, take prom pictures, attend his high school graduation or his wedding. I will never hold his children.

Fatal 18 year old Michael P

Mike was a happy chap but with a certain amount of sadness over his father's distancing from him. He was one of the most popular members of his group. He was a respectful son who very rarely caused me any problems; however, during the last year of his life his behaviour changed, and he began staying out overnight on weekends, giving rise to my feeling of foreboding. I wouldn't say that Mike was a risk-taker, but he was usually up for suggestions of activities that he thought might be fun. Mike had a lot to live for and planned to be a mechanical engineer. Since that was what he wanted to do, I'm convinced he would have been successful in his career choice.

Fatal 12 year old Tom H.

Tom was a sweet, bright, clever, funny, imaginative, talkative 12-year-old. He loved animals and nature, and he was curious about all sorts of things. He liked playing pranks and making people laugh. He had a menagerie of stuffed animals on his bed; his favorites were Winnie the Pooh and two dogs, Henry and Snoopy. Tom was the youngest of four children, the others quite a bit older. He participated in Boy Scouts and the youth group and handbell choir at church. He could hold his own in any adult conversation. He spent a lot of time outside, and often visited the neighbors, many of whom loved him as their own child. His death was a blow to everyone who knew him.

  The Database of Victims is compiled with data acquired from immediate family members, media and other reliable
sources.  We consider a victim to be someone who has participated and has after-effects (i.e. memory loss, vision
impairment, brain damage, death) directly due to  their participation in the Choking Game.  If you know someone who
has played and was injured or killed as a result please click the appropriate link "Report and Fatality"/ "Report Non lethal"
on the right side of this page.  All information will be kept confidential unless you expressly give permission otherwise.
Updated 01/25/2011
        Concrete statistics for death and injury due to The Choking Game are currently non existent.  We pride ourselves on
keeping a current and  impeccably accurate database of reported Choking Game Victims.  However, hundreds of
incidences go unreported. The tragic sudden death of a happy, healthy child is sometimes misclassified as a suicide.  
And grief stricken families, not knowing any other possibility, grieve it as such.  These cases need to be documented
proving the gravity of this issue and the need to implement education.
