A teenage prank went horribly wrong recently.
Chance Werner, an eighteen-year-old from Cartersville, Georgia died on Saturday after he was tied to a shopping cart and pushed into a Lake Allatoona only hours after graduating from high school. The death was a result of a botched game he was playing with friends.
A report from the Associated Press, via Georgia Department of Natural Resources spokeswoman Melissa Cummings, reveals the details of the game:
She says in the game Saturday night, participants sat in a shopping cart that was tied to a pole.
Others pushed the cart to the end of the dock so that the person sitting in it would be flung into the water. Cummings says the cart was tied to Werner instead of a pole and it pulled him under.
