By Madeline Buckley

South Bend Tribune


The woman who called 911 was gasping for breath as she told the dispatch operator that her partner strangled her. But even as she struggled to inhale, taking shallow, choking breaths, she said she didn’t need a paramedic, minimizing the danger she was in.
St. Joseph County police and prosecutors heard the 911 call during a training session on Friday, a classic example of the aftermath of a strangulation assault.

Manhattan DA: Domestic violence often an invisible crime

July 11, 2014

CBS News

By Manhattan DA Cyrus R. Vance, Jr.

Sylvie was a 33-year-old fashion designer in a highly-volatile relationship with her boyfriend, Nicholas Brooks, a drug user without a job or employment prospects.

Strangulation occurs from closure of the blood vessels carrying precious oxygen to the brain or airway closure in the windpipe from external pressure. Another way of looking at this is choking is accidental – strangulation is intentional.
