Sarah's Notes

This is NOT a new trend! This trend has been going on for years! However, the Coroners and Medical Examiners have not classified these types of death correctly; They have not been accountable.

November 4th and 5th 2005: The Choking Game Dr. Kim San Francisco

For over 50 years, many children and teenagers have indulged, secretly and in complete ignorance of the danger, in strangulation or suffocation experiments with friends or sometimes by themselves.

Interview Chris VanderHeyden


Gabriel .... My little boy...I miss you Gabe!
Gabriel is the little guy far left, my hand is on him, Sam is next to the devil....
My son Gabriel Harry Mordecai died on May 6, 2005 at the age of 13 years. Gabriel played a game and lost.This game goes by many names: Black Out, Pass Out, Choking, Fainting, Strangle, Flatline, California High, Funky Chicken and Space Monkey to name a few. If you are reading this, please send this message on; Please spread the dangers of this game; Our schools need to implement a program into one of it's existing programs on thrill seeking behavior, such as drug abuse and illicit sex. They teach our kids not to share needles, where to get birth control..They can teach them not to hold their breath!
Lives are being saved.. Pray and DEMAND the media STOPS saying "new' and  recent," instead DEMAND they start saying Kids Have Been Dying As A Result Of This Choking Game for decades !
This game has thrived on ignorance. Some think that if you introduce a child to 'something' you are opening a can of worms, giving them ideas. I say better your ideas are given than that of another who knows how to play this game. Beware people, kids teach kids this game; those kids teach other kids! I played this game when I was 11-12 years old! I did not like it; however I did try it more than once in the hopes of liking it. 42 years of age is a heck of a time to learn the physiological effects of lack of oxygen to the human body. I wish I had known that some kids become addicted to this asphyxiation game, that this was a practice that has and continues to kill our children. Each and Every state needs to re-evaluate, at their OWN cost each and every single 'death' of an adolescent who's death has been classified 'suicide' or 'auto erotic asphyxia, by strangulation, or aspyxiation.  There are five things that are looked for when looking at the possibility classifying a death as suicide or AeA: I bet, I KNOW these five signs were and are not met, on many of these deaths. I know many of these classifications have been made based only the on the childs body position when found. Many times the family is not even spoken with!  IE, the childs being found as hanging, ...etc.
These officials, Medical Examiners (ME's) and Coroners need to suck it up here, to bite the bullet and admit their pre mature classification on thousands and thousands of these wrongly classified deaths. There is no way that this should be able to be ignored any longer. Every single retired teacher, counselor, adiministrator, ME, Coroners, law enforcement employees who are hearing of this current 'outbreak' and this is jarring their memories, well let's hope they have integrity and will do the right thing..Talk about it, FIX IT!  Go and give some of these families who think their child has killed themselves some peace! Let them have the oppurtunity to re visit their childs friends, ask questions!

We miss you Gabe; We will never stop and we will always know that you are one of us, every day of every year that we are alive. Gabriel Harry, you are my boy, my son, I still have the need and instinct to be your Mom, to take care of you. It will never go away, I will never stop being and needing to be your Mom ster. How special you always are. God bless you lil' man of mine..
                      Loving you, oh so much, Mom, Sissy Bear, Arthur and Samuel ....
Oh, and if you happen to be a Coroner, ME, EMT or police officer who is reading this? I want to plant a seed.. try this: If a child playing this game,  falls or lands differently than they thought they would, and if they were SITTING on their BUNK BED, do you think it is POSSIBLE that they, at the time of unconsiousnes, FELL, ROLLED OR SLID OFF THE BED? NOT JUMPED?
That ME in North Carolina really blew it when he said he knew Bryson meant to kill himself; that if Bryson hadn't meant to he would have had an emergency device, that he would not have jumped off the bunk bed. Oh my goodness... Bryson was 12 years old! How tall is that ceiling in Bryson's room? How much did Bryson weigh? How tall was Bryson? How sturdy was that bunk bed set? Bryson's death was classified as a suicide and the ME - Coroner never interviewed the family! Are you kidding me? Did the media and any other STATE OFFICIAL WHO HEARD THIS not have a problem with it? Yes, someone has started looking into North Carolina ... Bryson.
This is anything but a new trend. The new trend should now be, Officials do their jobs with INTEGRITY and save lives; They do not dismiss due to their ignorance. They acknowledge that 'UNKNOWN' or 'PENDING' are options when classifying deaths!
