A 10-year-old boy died in a rope jump accident while trying to perform the stunt seen in a video, police said on Thursday. Police said the incident took place in northeast Delhi’s Kartar Nagar area around 7 pm on Wednesday when he was at home with his mother. “The boy used to watch a lot of stunt videos. On Wednesday evening, when he was jumping inside a room, he tried to perform a similar stunt, but the rope wrapped around his neck and suffocated him. As a result he fainted,” said a senior police officer. The boy was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was declared brought dead. The official said the parents had not made a PCR call, but the hospital informed the police. Since it is an incident of accidental death, no case has been registered and proceedings have been initiated under section 174 of CrPC. Police said the father of the deceased works in an electronics firm, while his wife is a housewife.
Last year, a 16-year-old boy from Indore, Madhya Pradesh, accidentally hanged himself while shooting an Instagram reel. He wanted to create a fake hanging sequence for the photo-sharing platform, but accidentally strangled himself. Aditya, the son of Devilala Nayak and a class 10th student, was a social media fanatic. The family said that he used to upload videos regularly on all social media platforms. Recently, his family had got him deleted all such apps but last week his parents had gone to attend a wedding ceremony in Ratlam. Not letting go of the opportunity, Aditya called his friends to his house and tried to shoot a fake video of the hanging. However, as soon as the teenager climbed onto a chair and put a noose around his neck, he slipped and died after being hit by a rope. Other frightened youths fled from the spot. The incident came to light when Aditya’s younger brother Rajdeep returned from his coaching class in the afternoon. He called up the neighbors and took his brother to a private hospital but the doctor declared the youth brought dead.
