‘The Choking Game’ Regaining Popularity, but It’s No Laughing Matter [VIDEO]

An old game is regaining popularity, but it’s no joke. Hundreds of deaths have been reported as kids put themselves at risk playing what is known as ‘The Choking Game’ or ‘The Fainting Game.’ Participants hyperventilate, then a friend applies pressure to the chest in order to make them pass out.

Teens who have uploaded videos can be heard laughing hysterically as their friends lose consciousness, but experts say it can cause seizures, brain damage, and even death.

As if parents didn’t already have enough to worry about!

There’s more on this dangerous trend from WTVM-TV in the video below.
