躲猫猫(死)(duǒ māomāo (sǐ)): (death by) hide-and-seek

“Prison hide-and-seek competition.”
Competition for the lamest excuse for a prison inmate’s death. In first place is “drank boiled water,” second is “played hide-and-seek,” and third goes to “hanged himself with his own shoelace.”

In 2009, farmer Li Qiaoming died from serious head injuries while under police custody in Yunnan Province for illegal logging. The prison authorities claimed that Li ran into a wall while playing hide-and-seek with other prison inmates. After netizens grumbled, the authorities agreed to allow an inspection of the prison—but the “volunteer” inspectors were revealed to be employees of state-run media.

See also death by drinking boiled water, hang oneself, death by nightmare, and “suffocation by quilt.”
