FTA: Witnesses reported that Arceneaux said he would not give up or "tap out."

Is that Darwin Award worthy?

Absolutely.
Is it wrong that TFA gave me a giggle?

When I was about four years old, one of my older cousins(he was about 6 or 7) was slapping me around and wrestling me to the ground. He was doing it pretty much to show me who was bigger and stronger. After making me scream and beg for mercy for a while, he plopped down on the floor, on his stomach and started watching TV.

I did a flying knee drop off the couch onto his back. He was crying so hard, he wasn't making any noise(of course, it didn't help that I knocked the wind out of him).

Even though my Grandmother yelled at me and spanked me, it was totally worth it.

They're men and cousins and at least one of them was naked?

In other news, 'rear naked choke hold' is surprisingly not a gay sex position.

Tap out. Recover your breath. Beat the snot out of the little cousin for trying shiat like that in the first place.

I know someone else who died after wrestling. Much later though.

2012-04-03 11:55:58 AM  
The only way it makes sense that this happened is if the guys' trachea was crushed. If that was the case, describing it as a rear naked choke is inaccurate as that really is a blood choke, not a wind choke.

He was keeping it real.

Sounds like there's more to this story, either a medical problem or a 14-year-old with murderous anger issues. I would think that if the guy was healthy and his cousin released him as soon as he stopped fighting back that he should have been okay.

/ But yeah, tap out when you have to
 
2012-04-03 11:57:45 AM  
I feel bad for the kid. His life is likely ruined after this, and if the wrong guy ever finds out about his sordid past, it would likely be used as leverage to fail an innocent man who only wanted to re-attend grammar school.

NTTAWWT, but this just provides further evidence that WWE, UFC, etc. along with biker gangs and other "manly" activities and groups are just thinly-veiled excuses for homo-erotic behaviour. Guys, just come out of the closet already. Knock off the violence and just go at it like you know you want to.

Or that, yeah, the kid may not have known how to do a proper choke hold.

It's sad how uneducated people are. Properly applied choke holds (Guillotine, Rear Naked, Anaconda, and Darce) are ALL deadly if applied for an excessive amount of time. You can render someone unconcious in a matter of a few seconds through lack of oxygen and blood to the brain. 30-40 seconds is enough to kill anyone, age and size are meaningless.

Also, he should have been strong enough to just pry the kids arms off. Fattie was fat.

Blood and wind chokes both have to be released quickly after the person loses consciousness, otherwise they can kill. I imagine that's what happened here.

Wild animals kill by clamping down on throats. Shouldn't be the kind of thing people play with or take lightly.

The juvenile, who is 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighs 110 pounds, placed his arm around the neck of Arceneaux, who was 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighed 220 pounds, in a move commonly known as a "rear naked choke hold" for 30 to 40 seconds.

Witnesses reported that Arceneaux said he would not give up or "tap out."


Maybe the spirit would not give up or tap out but the body did.

Trance750: Cue the WWE lawsuits....


Except they always have ads saying "Kids, don't try this at home," on every WWE show and have so for at least 3-5 years now.

So at this point, even if there is a lawsuit involved, it'll most likely be thrown out of court.

It's more likely that he'll have emotional problems for a very long period in his life. He'll also have a very negative stigma attached to any type of male-bonding hand-to-hand physical competition, and to professional wrestling. He may end up needing some type of therapy before he reaches adulthood.

The term "naked" when referring to judo or jujitsu chokes means that only the bare arms are used as opposed to using the gi sleeve or collar to choke

Collar choke

Story said that he was in the hold for 30 to 40 seconds. Depending on the older cousins shape (and at 5'10" 220, it's safe to say he was doughy like me) I wouldn't be surprised that being winded the deprived of oxygen to the brain for almost a minute would kill a man.

I'm confused. When you think of cousins killing each other it's sexual to you?
