Dalton's mother reported him missing last Thursday when he failed to return home after visiting a friend. Search and rescue crews found his body Friday in a tree near his Island Park home, the Fremont County sheriff's office said in a statement.

There was nothing at the scene suggesting that anyone else was involved, the sheriff's office said.


There had to be another person. This is something kid's would do to impress or be competitive about. It doesn't seem to be something you'd go off and by yourself.

We did something like this as kids but I recall leaning against a tree and another kid would put pressure on the neck by pushing toward the tree on the outside and then the whole pass out flopping thing would ensue.

This is a sad day for the kids parents and his friends


This is my thoughts on this too. I'll bet if you pressure enough of the friends, you'll find out how many were actually there. I'll also be willing to bet there was at least one older kid involved teaching the younger ones about the game. It is a tragedy that a 10 year old is looking to get high. I guess they just found a quicker way to die than just overdosing on horse after 10 years of using.

I guess I have the problem with this quote from the article:
"Younger kids don't know that they can die from this, that it's a very dangerous activity," Shapiro said.


Are they saying that a 10 year old doesn't know that they can die from not breathing???? 8-o

Should that be something taught to kids?

Sad for the family.

Personally I think a 10-year-old has to be cut some slack for doing something stupid, he's still just a kid. I would be much more inclined to ask where the heck his parents were, as some others have suggested.

No slack is cut. A 10 year old should not be dumb enough to try and hang himself. He is a little young to qualify for darwin, as I doubt he could spread his seed.

The Darwin Awards salute the improvement of the human genome
by honoring those who accidentally kill themselves in really stupid ways.
Of necessity, this honor is generally bestowed posthumously.
