Abstract:
It is generally accepted, that sleepwalkers show complex behaviors leading to non-intended consequences. It is not unusual that these persons are thereby injured. However, sporadically a bizarre endangering of themselves or others is reported also, which ranges from homicide of the life partner to accidental (pseudo-)suicide.In this article, we report on a 28year-old man who unexpectedly attempted to hang himself by a whip at night. We discuss the reasons, why this bizarre act should actually be taken as a scenic behavior in the course of a NREM-parasomnia, and the difficulty to proof this claim.
