Massachusetts man wears “knife necklace”, trips, stabs himself…dies. Why do these things even exist?
· Dec 10, 2023 ·

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.
