[Naked] Couple Found Dead In Car In Garage [23 year old man & 17 year old girl die of CO poisoning]

MILWAUKEE -- A relative discovered a 23-year-old man dead in the front seat of a car Friday still embracing a dead 17-year-old girl.

Their nude bodies were inside a closed garage in the front seat of a 1978 Cutlass. They had apparently been having sex when they were overcome by carbon monoxide, 12 News reported.

The medical examiner said the deaths appear accidental.

The two were not found for nearly a day. The man's mother became worried because she could not reach him on his cell phone Friday morning.

"She called his cousin, who lived nearby, to help her track him down. He's the one who looked inside the garage and found the bodies," WISN 12 News reporter Nick Bohr said.

"Carbon monoxide can accumulate very rapidly. It's just something you don't want to take a chance with," said Dr. Ken Schellhase, of the Medical College of Wisconsin.

Schellhase said warming up a car in a closed garage is one of the most dangerous things you can do, much less staying in the car as it idles.

He said the symptoms can be hard to recognize.

"The symptoms are pretty non-specific. It can include things like headache, dizziness, a general sense of ill ease," Schellhase said.

Sleepiness is also a symptom.

"Those are often the most tragic circumstances where people fall asleep, and there's a carbon monoxide leak of some sort. The dose is overwhelming," Schellhase said.

Schellhase said it is unusual for someone to be overcome so quickly, but it's not clear how long they may have been in the car prior to having sex.

According to the medical examiner's report, the carbon monoxide levels the garage got so intense at some point that the car itself choked off for lack of oxygen.

The car still had one-quarter of a tank of gas.

Almost sounds like a Darwin Award candidate...just about anybody should know not to leave a running car in a closed garage.

I remember every little thing
As if it happened only yesterday
Parking by the lake
And there was not another car in sight
And I never had a girl
Looking any better than you did
And all the kids at school
They were wishing they were me that night
And now our bodies are oh so close and tight
It never felt so good, it never felt so right
And we're glowing like the metal
on the edge of a knife
Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
C'mon! Hold on tight!
C'mon! Hold on tight!
Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night
I can see paradise by the dashboard light

Well, the D.A. won't have to charge the 23 year old guy with having sex with a minor. The guy won't go through life with the stigma of being on the sex offender registry. The girl won't have to struggle with the decision to have an abortion, if the act impregnated her. Bad behavior has so many consequences.

Two die of carbon monoxide poisoning

By BOB PURVIS

Posted: Feb. 28, 2006

A Milwaukee man and a 17-year-old girl died of carbon monoxide poisoning while having sex inside a running car in a closed garage last week, according to a Milwaukee County medical examiner's investigation report.

Family members of the 23-year-old man had gone looking for him Friday after he didn't return repeated calls to his cell phone. He had dropped his girlfriend off at work Thursday night and had borrowed her car, which a relative spotted parked in an alley behind his home in the 5400 block of W. Lincoln Creek Drive around noon Friday, the report states.

The relative entered the man's two-car detached garage, found him and the girl inside and called police.

There was no sign of external trauma, according to the report. An autopsy conducted Saturday determined that both had died from carbon monoxide poisoning.

The man's mother said the dead 17-year-old was not her son's girlfriend, and she did not know her, according to the report.

The girl had been staying with a relative a few blocks away, the medical examiner's report states.

My parents never
warned me about underwear,
but my Dad often

told me about how
my Granddad almost died when
he tried to listen

to the radio
in the car in the garage
with the car running

and the door pulled down.
I think my parents were wise
in their warning choice . . .

Not only did she lose her boyfriend, she lost him while he was in her car cheating on her. I feel sorry for her, but you're right, she found out who he really was!

Not long ago, an entire family of 5 was killed by carbon monoxide.

The husband came home drunk...as usual, and left the car running in the garage.

This happened in Silver Spring, Maryland.

One victim was found dead with the water running and a shaver in his hand...another died propped up in bed...was apparently reading.

Surprised there isn't a law or county code enacted to seal attached garages. I sure don't like bedrooms over garages...these huge master suites.

You should post the end lyrics, as that is the best part of the song.

And the feelin came up on my like a tidal wave.
I started swearin to my god and on my mother's grave
that I would love you till the end of time
I swore I'd love you till the end of time.

So now I'm praying for the end of time
To hurry up and arrive.
Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you
I don't think that I could really survive.

I'd never break my promise or forget my vow
but god only knows what I could do right now.
Prayin for the end of time is all that I could do (do-do!)
Prayin for the end of time, so I can end my time with you!

Oh... they always drove top of the line transportation. And I don't think they worried about the speed of death's arrival. I just think that their egos got the best of them... and neither one could talk the other out of it. That is bizarre. But, they did EVERYTHING together. Appears that suicide is no exception.

This is still my favorite "Death By Doing IT" Story

Mile-High Club Failure

1994 Darwin Award Nominee Confirmed True by Darwin

(23 December 1991, Florida) This account of an aircraft accident is quoted directly from the National Transportation Safety Board report, with comments added in [brackets] for clarity.
Aircraft: PIPER PA-34-200T, Registration: N47506
Injuries: 2 Fatal.

The private pilot and a pilot rated passenger [two pilots] were going to practice simulated instrument flight. Witnesses observed the airplane's right wing fail in a dive and crash. Examination of the wreckage and bodies revealed that both occupants were partially clothed and the front right seat was in the full aft reclining position. [The pilots had converted the co-pilot seat to a bed.] Neither body showed evidence of seatbelts or shoulder harnesses being worn. [They were lying on the bed.] Examination of the individuals' clothing revealed no evidence of ripping or distress to the zippers and belts. [Their lack of clothing seemed to be voluntary.]

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:

The pilot in command's improper in-flight decision to divert her attention to other activities not related to the conduct of the flight. [The pilot and co-pilot were having sex, and nobody was flying the plane.] Contributing to the accident was the exceeding of the design limits of the airplane leading to a wing failure. [The lack of a pilot caused the plane to fly erratically, over-stressing the wing and leading to a crash.]

OOOOPPPPSSSssss

I know them. They only ever thought of themselves. They constantly traded up spouses, following that dollar. They raised their children as afterthought's. They ignored some siblings because they were "beneath" them. Their entire lives were about airing stuff.

One of them told me on my birthday the most memorable thing. She held my face in her hands and looked deep into my eyes and told me "The secret."... that I could get anything I ever wanted in life from a man. Then she asked... Doesn't that make you feel powerful?

Yuck.

Not only did she lose her boyfriend, she lost him while he was in her car cheating on her.

I can just imagine her side of the telephone call.

"Hello"
"No, I haven'te heard. What news?"
"He did WHAT? With WHO?!?! I'M GOING TO F@^%#&@ KILL HIM!!"
"Oh"
"Ohhhh, heheh."
"No, I'm fine. In fact, I think I'm going to go buy a new car to celebrate."

I have a pilot friend who joined the Mile-Hi Club and says it was one of the greatest experiences of his life. He tells me the recipe for success is as follows:

If you and the girl both have strong stomachs, it is reportedly blissful. Still not a smart move for the pilot in command, but certainly sounds safer than what the other dingalings were doing.
