This is really bad a kid trying to do this. I really feel bad for the parents. I mean what do you say # happens? oh man.....
BOMBAY (Reuters) - India's first execution in 13 years has claimed an additional toll of at least two children dead in mishaps as they re-enacted
the highly publicized hanging of a man convicted of raping and murdering a schoolgirl.
On Sunday, 14-year-old Prem Gaekwad died when he tied one end of a rope around his neck and swung the other end on a ceiling fan in his Bombay home,
in an apparent re-enactment.
Last week, a 12-year-old girl died in the eastern state of West Bengal, when she tried to demonstrate for her younger brother how Chatterjee was
executed, newspapers said.
And a 10-year-old boy in the same state almost died last week when he and his friends acted out the execution, taking the roles of Chatterjee, the
hangman, a doctor and the prison warden.

Well the point of this article is to not screw around like these kids, the sad thing is they were only teens. They had their lives ahead of them but
they were caught up in the execution of this man on deathrow.
