David Carradine's death

    "The body of American actor David Carradine, best known for the 1970s TV series "Kung Fu," was found in a hotel room closet with a rope tied to his neck and genitals, and his death may have been caused by accidental suffocation,. . . . ."

    I simply do not understand WHY anyone would auto-asphyxiate themselves for an orgasm. We've had a local case of an 11 year old dying this way.

    I almost hope it was murder . . .. .what a way to leave a legacy for your family.

    If only he had followed Mom's rules:

    1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

    2. Wear clean undies daily.

    3. Don't do anything Mom wouldn't do.

    I agree, Steph, what a terrible way for him to leave his family.

    I wasn't a fan of his until the Kill Bill films came out. Sad way to die. Same way the guy from INXS died.

    Although he didn't look like him h was excellent playing Woody Guthrie in "Bound for Glory". Woody was a drinker and not a good husband and father in his first marriage.
    Maybe they had something in common.

    how sad for his family.
    apparently someone else was involved--i saw on the news today his hands were tied behind his back?

    we had a problem with teenagers playing the game "gasp" in our area for a while--when i was a medic, i picked up a 15 y/o girl hung in her bedroom with a belt, by accident.. her and friends were taking turns choking each other to get hypoxic enough to have more of an orgasm before they passed out. it was so sad. she was alive but severely brain damaged.

    so i live by the rule, "never do anything you wouldn't want to explain to the paramedics".

    Unfortunately, David Carradine had an extensive drug history. I remember reading that he dropped acid over 1000 times. He also abused many other drugs and alcohol. It's tragic, drugs rot the mind and soul.

    I used to love the show 'Kung Fu'. I never missed it.
