Youtube videos asked over boy’s ‘suicide’ in January

(ANSA) – ROME, OCT 14 – Bari prosecutors said Thursday they
have filed an international legal request to Ireland to obtain
the Youtube videos viewed by a nine-year-old boy found dead in
the southern city on January 25 and whose death may have been
caused by an extreme online game involving partial suffocation.
   
The boy was found in his room with a cord around his neck
attached to a coat hanger, and his death was initially ruled a
suicide.
   
Extreme online games like the choking game and the pass-out
challenge have been linked to several deaths of young people
around the world. (ANSA).
