A Bronx Man Tore His Own Head Off in Broad Daylight

Guess how?

Spoiler:
According to the New York Daily News, an unidentified 51-year-old man parked his 2005 Honda CRV on the street on Monday around 9:35 am. He reportedly looped a chain around his neck, secured it to a pole, and got back into his car.

Police told the newspaper that the man then stepped on the gas, decapitating himself. According to the Daily News, "The man's head was left on the street by the pole after his vehicle hit a parked truck on the opposite side of the street."

It has been done before.

I don't know what "broad daylight" has to do with it.

Yeah, it was in Outrage. Their heads didn't come off, though.

This was not the time to lose one's head.
That's not the way to get ahead in life.
It's a shame he wasn't more headstrong.
He'll never be the head of a major corporation.

Okay, that'll do.

Re: A Bronx Man Tore His Own Head Off in Broad Daylight

From 2011:

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/nati...ticle-1.946497

...A divorced man decapitated himself with a cable in Virginia on Tuesday after getting into a dispute with his ex-wife, authorities said.

Police arrived at the home in Yorktown after receiving a call about a domestic dispute around 10 a.m., according to the Virginia Gazette.

They were talking with the ex-wife when a deputy saw a white Ford Explorer towing a utility trailer. The trailer was on fire, and a man identified as her ex-husband was behind the wheel.

Firefighters arrived, and authorities attempted to get the man to exit the SUV. That's when they noticed a cable tied to a nearby tree was wrapped around his neck.

Officers pleaded with the man to surrender, but instead he hit the gas. He was pulled from the vehicle, and his head was yanked clean off his body. The vehicle continued moving for about 150 yards.

Just a more intense version of autoerotic asphyxiation.

I am sorry that this man killed himself , but this is the first thing I thought about, after hearing a POP when I read the story this afternoon.. It also left a man's decapitated body lying on the floor next to his own severed head.

I'm surprised ISIS hasn't claimed responsibility.

If the Honda was a convertible, the NY Post would have went with this headline:

"Headless Man Found in Topless Convertible"

That would not be a surprise, based on past behavior:

I couldn't help but laugh at that 2011 story. The fact that he was apparently pulling a burning trailer behind him when he ripped off his own head makes that the most awesome suicide in the history of the world.
