Machinery, steel dinosaurs
Glass, jagged shards
Keys rattle, jingle
Rope, rafter, neck
Other on floor.

When I was a kid another kid told me about something similar: pressing on your carotid arteries until you pass out (no sex involved). I thought it was the stupidest thing I’d ever heard and couldn’t believe people would do that for fun. Cases like this are tragic.
Despair is right! Are kids still doing this? Actually, my husband got a step up at work once because a guy senior to him died this way–an adult. Awful.
