Girl strangles herself dancing to Lady Gaga
Nine News ^ | January 27, 2010 | ninemsn staff

Posted on 01/26/2010 10:11:02 PM PST by myknowledge

A schoolgirl in the UK accidentally hanged herself with a dressing gown cord while dancing in her bedroom to Lady Gaga.

Megan Williams, 10, from Manchester in north-west England, put the cord around her neck as she danced around the room, the Daily Mail newspaper reports.

The cord, which had been tied in a loop on a bunk bed, tightened and eventually strangled Megan to death as she struggled to escape.

An inquest heard Megan's sister had tied the dressing gown cord to the bunk bed so she could put her leg into the loop and pull herself up.

The girl's mother, Lisa Williams, told the inquest she had heard her daughter dancing through the floorboards from upstairs before the accident.

Megan's 15-year-old brother raised the alarm after discovering his sister's body.

"I remember thinking he (her son) was joking and waiting for him to change then I realised something wasn't right," the Daily Mail quoted Mrs Williams as telling the inquest.

Mrs Williams said she had found her daughter stilled dressed in her school uniform with blue lips and the cord around her neck.

The mother desperately tried to perform CPR on Megan as she waited for paramedics to arrive.

Megan was rushed to hospital in a critical condition but her life support machine was turned off the next day.

Megan Williams strangulated herself dancing to Lady Gaga? Can't believe she would hang herself doing so unless it was an accident.

Anyway, Lady Gaga is so lewd in a thousand ways.

I’ve listened to Lady Gaga. I’ve never thought of strangling myself but eating a bullet has come to mind.

Lady Gaga is no lady. In fact, she’s downright creepy.

Yeah, sooooooo freakish! No wonder a 10 year old girl can easily be hallucinated by Lady Gaga’s ‘music’.

Wow. Poor kid. Poor family. We bandy the word tragedy around too much, for a lot of things that don’t apply. This does. Very sad. Poor kid. What a shame.

Sad story. Could have just as well been the Bay City Rollers she was dancing to.

What is a dressing gown cord?

A literal manifestation of "The Line" described in Chapter 60 of Moby Dick.

All men live enveloped in whale-lines. All are born with halters round their necks; but it is only when caught in the swift, sudden turn of death, that mortals realize the silent, subtle, ever-present perils of life.

from wikipedia:

Lady Gaga had initially signed with Def Jam Recordings...after Island Def Jam Music Group Chairman and CEO L. A. Reid heard her singing down the hallway from his office...she was dropped from Def Jam

Lady GagGag sounds so much better with lots of...

Never actually saw one of her videos till you posted that link. Makes me believe even more that Lady Gaga is really a guy.

Word is that Lady Gaga has a fully functioning penis. I think that makes her MR. Gaga.

God that's awful. I don't get the Lady Gaga angle to the story. Who cares what song was on at the time?

My mother's friend lost a son about 60 years ago - running through the backyard, he got strangled in the clothes line. When I was a kid, I heard about it as an already decades old story and it creeps me out to this day.

I expect the mom will be asking herself that question for the next 50 years.... she doesn't need some judgmental internet busybody asking it for her.

Oh for godsakes! Her 10 year old daughter was in her room listening to music!

Maybe Mom should have tied her daughter to her forehead so she'd never let her out of her sight!

Well put.

This woman has lost her daughter, and in a horrible way. Isn't that punishment... torture enough?

I don't either, except to sensationalize the story by making Lady Gaga somehow responsible.

yep, but this is why more parent’s need to try and be alittle more involved with what kids are listening to and how they are affected by whats out there.

Here’s the thing, the more lewd the more outragious the more sexually explicit the more money the record labels make. How long will the Lord tarry with a country exporting preversion where it once used to export freedom, liberty, and real hope? Not much longer I imagine ...

The Lord preserves us for the Righteous' sake.

While our country has much in the way of vile perversion and shocking filth, it also has much to offer on the other side. There is much good, much heroism, much patriotism, much generosity and much Christ-like love to be found here as well.

Remember that even Sodom and Gomorrah would have been spared for just ten righteous souls.
