A school district in suburban Chicago removed hooks in its bathroom stalls after two second-grade boys were found playing a "hanging game" by hanging their shirt collars to the hooks and twisting in the air.
The boys were not harmed, but there was a potential for strangulation, said Mary Anne Wesoloski, school nurse at Countryside Elementary in Barrington, Ill., in an interview with WGN-TV in Chicago.
In response to the incident, the school district removed hooks from all of its schools' bathroom stalls, WGN reported.
School officials advised parents to caution their children against playing a game that "while seemingly fun and innocent to a young student - is a very dangerous act," according to a district statement to the Chicago Tribune.
