Man Survives Passing Out with Head in Museum Noose

DODGE CITY, KAN (AP).- Officials say an Arkansas man got a frightening look at frontier justice when he passed out with a display noose around his head during a trip to a Wild West-themed Kansas museum.

Police in Dodge City, Kan., have declined to release the name of the 69-year-old visitor from Parks, Ark. They say he lost consciousness Wednesday and slumped in the "Hanging Tree" noose display at the Boot Hill Museum. His feet remained on the floor.

Museum director Lara Brehm says museum staff and two women he was with helped remove the man from the noose and that he regained consciousness before being taken to a hospital.

She says the noose usually hangs 15 feet in the air and that the museum doesn't know how it came to be hanging low enough for a visitor to reach it.
