I thought this was very interesting as well how come we're not hearing more about this? Is this a widespread problem in the New York area? Can you get me more information? Thanks your friend Bobby

Mike this is interesting. Pretty new and hasn't exploded in call volume yet. They say the reason for its popularity is because the end user does not get the stressors of suffocation and therefore passes out in a relaxed state before the end result of death.

Chief , I will be more than happy to , i've asked our EMS freinds for more info , as soon as i do I will forward on to you
