A SA mum has taken to Facebook to share the details of a cruel and dangerous prank that injured her son over the weekend.

In a warning to other parents, Kat Price, who lives in Port Lincoln SA, said on Saturday, her nine-year-old son was riding his bike around Centenary Oval when he was injured by the prank.

“My kid was riding his bike around and some other kids tied the rope from one of the flag poles to the fence — as a result he was nearly strangled,” she wrote on the Port Lincoln Cash Classifieds public page.

“He didn’t know these other kids had done it so didn’t see the rope.

“If anyone saw anything please let me know as these kids did this on purpose and it could have ended very badly.”

The concerned mother also posted three photographs of her son, showing a bright red strangle mark around his neck.

Ms Price said her son struggled to breathe immediately after the incident and was taken to hospital, while the three kids at the oval fled.

Poor little fella. Please teach your children to be aware of the safety of others around when they are playing little pranks. I can’t help but think they are just kids and I am sure they meant no real harm. But an important lesson needs to be taught to all kids about other peoples safety.

What would you do as the parent of the little pranksters?

  • ooh poor kid! that was very dangerous and looked like it was very tight around his neck


  • I would most certainly be giving an eduactional talk to them about safety and what could have occured. I would be asking them to make an apology of some sort. Plus I’m sure I would make sure there were some extra punishments put in place in the home.


  • There is also possiblity his throat has been damaged too. It could make it difficult for him to eat some foods. I know a lady who accidentally ran into one in the dark many years ago and still has problems swallowing some foods


  • This is absolutely horrific and dangerous. Why on earth would anyone consider this prank funny? Pranks never ever have good outcomes as they are always at someone else’s expense. This could have been a tragedy.


  • A while ago someone was putting wire over the tracks here. Could have killed someone.


  • How awful, glad it didn’t end worse !
    If I would be the parent of one of the pranksters I would have a serious talk and show the pictures. I would like to see my kid then make a gesture to the kid and his family he/she pranked.


  • This looks pretty bad. What were the other children thinking?


  • poor kid!I hope he recovers physically and mentally fast!


  • Oh little one! This looks so scary.
    If one of the pranksters was my kid, I would feel terrible. Because it would mean that I failed as a parent! :-( How can a child think about such a horrible prank? :-(
