  1. strangled

    Strangling is compression of the neck that may lead to unconsciousness or death by causing an increasingly hypoxic state in the brain. Fatal strangling typically occurs in cases of violence, accidents, and is one of two main ways that hanging causes death (alongside breaking the victim's neck). Strangling does not have to be fatal; limited or interrupted strangling is practised in erotic asphyxia, in the choking game, and is an important technique in many combat sports and self-defense systems. Strangling can be divided into three general types according to the mechanism used: Hanging — Suspension from a cord wound around the neck Ligature strangulation — Strangulation without suspension using some form of cord-like object called a garrote Manual strangulation — Strangulation using the fingers or other extremity
