In a tragic case, a paralysed wheelchair-bound mother in UK saw her 12-year-old prankster son hang himself to death before her eyes and she couldn’t reach up to save him.
Marlowe Isaac Myers, a “happy” schoolboy and a well-known prankster, may have been trying to play a joke on
his mother that went wrong, an inquest heard Friday.
The boy was found hanging from a kitchen coat hook in his Cambridge home with the zip of his fastened jacket compressed against the front of his neck.
Police officers investigating his death found a chair beside the hook, perhaps suggesting that he could have tried to wear his coat while it was on the hook.
