Saugus, Massachusetts, Patrick Kenney Jr. was leaving Saugus' Kowloon Restaurant when according to authorities, Kenney fell and stabbed himself with his necklace knife.
I'll repeat that just so we're clear.
A necklace knife.
That's a necklace with a knife hanging on it.
Common sense and a minutiae of self-preservation makes it hard for me to believe such an accoutrement even exists in the world, but I checked. Amazon has dozens of these little death baubles for sale.
Whoever invented these should get a visit from Will Smith.
And the reason why they're a bad idea should now be obvious; you could stab yourself like Patrick Kenney Jr..
And even worse, Kenney passed away from his injuries, leaving behind a wife and two young children.
His bereaved family issued the following statement:
"Our family is mourning the loss of Patrick, focused on his wife Lauren and two young children, and trying to make sense of this horrific tragedy. Patrick was a loving father and husband, brother, son, and loyal friend to many. This is a horrible tragedy."
It is indeed a horrible tragedy.
A tragedy that could have easily been avoided by not wearing a knife on a necklace.
