NC high school student makes choking game PSA

RALEIGH — A high school sophomore in North Carolina is producing a public service announcement about the dangers of the so-called “choking game” after one of her friends died.

WRAL-TV reported Tuesday that Raleigh Charter High School student Sarah Huck wrote, directed and is producing the PSA. It warns teens against choking themselves or allowing a friend to do
so in an attempt to pass out. The oxygen deprivation is believed to produce a euphoric high.

Huck decided to make the PSA after Enloe High School sophomore Kris Marceno died Nov. 2. The 15-year-old had tied an electrical cord around his neck and attached the end to a bunk bed.

She hopes local television stations will air the PSA, which she plans to complete in May.
