A group of boys were attempting to shoot a YouTube video when their fun and games became deadly.
"As part of the skit they were performing they were using fake blood and one of the children tied a rope around his neck and attached himself to a swing, and when he slipped the rope tightened up on his neck," says Whatcom County Sheriff Bill Elfo.
The boy lost consciousness. The kids ran to a parent, who freed the boy from the rope and called 911. The boy started breathing once his airway was cleared. Police say CPR was not needed.
The boy is expected to make a full recovery.
The Sheriff's department in Washington is using this incident as a warning to parents. They want parents to pay close attention to what their kids are up to. This is especially important when kids head out of the house with a video camera. They fear that more children will be attempting dangerous stunts in order to achieve internet fame.
