Planking or Alcohol – What Caused Acton Beale’s Death

Posted on: May 15, 2011

There have been multiple sites online reporting the death of Acton Beale, who just recently died while trying to do “planking” on a balcony.  Now people are saying that planking got its first victim, but did it?

From the information taken by the police, Beale, 20, was returning home from a night out when he decided to do the “feat”. Though toxicology reports have not been made available, it would seem that this risky activity was caused by alcohol.

Are we putting the blame in a harmless activity that only involves lying down in strange places (not necessarily dangerous)? Are we again taking the blame out of alcohol? I think yes.
