Choking game blamed in ten-year-old's death
Idaho officials blame a dangerous game -- one that's apparently popular among some young kids -- for the death of a ten-year-old boy. Dalton Eby may be the state's second child killed in recent months playing a choking game where kids try to cut off oxygen to the brain to get high.
A statement from the Fremont County sheriff's office says children know of it as "pass-out game," the "fainting game," the "tingling game" or the "something dreaming game." The boy's mother reported him missing last Thursday when he didn't come home after visiting a friend. Emergency workers found his body, hanging from a tree, near his home the next day.
