[su_right_ad]It is believed that Temidayo Joseph, 16, of Essex, England, accidentally hanged himself trying to find out how Robin Williams died.

Essex Coroner Eleanor McGann testified at the inquest, saying: “There was a conversation which took place about big news in the media about the death of Robin Williams … Temi had said, ‘I don’t understand why somebody would do this to themself.’

“I do wonder if this bright, little boy … perhaps he was just experimenting to see how Robin Williams killed himself, but with no intention of doing it himself.

“We know it’s incredibly easy to hang yourself from a sitting position. It’s perfectly possible that he did not have any idea how easy it is to hang yourself by mistake.”

Joseph’s suicide was described as out of character.

    It’s sad that this happened. Just shows that stupidity is no accident and we all do get stupid at one time or another but just lucky we survived.
