Boot Hill Museum Bans Nooses
10/06/2010

No more nooses will swing from the rafters at an Old West museum where a tourist almost accidentally hanged himself.

The Boot Hill Museum in Dodge City decided to take down all its

nooses after a 69-year-old man from Parks, Ark., was hospitalized

on Sept. 23. The man had his head in a noose and was getting his

picture taken when he lost consciousness.

Two women and an off-duty police officer helped free the man,

who was treated at Western Plains Medical Complex.

Executive director Lara Brehm said it

wasn't clear how the noose became loose enough to hang within

people's reach. It was hanging in its proper place when the museum

closed the night before the incident.
