That's a form of partial suspension hanging. It's a mediocre form of that method in my experience.

This is an old thread but this is the method I'd prefer to use if I could only figure out how to do it. Robin Williams committed suicide this way because of his worsening dementia. This thread was started a few months ago and sometime later Kate Spade committed suicide using a similar method, hanging herself from a doorknob using a scarf. I think she just knelt down on the floor and did it. I've tried hanging myself from a doorknob using a pair of pajama pants but I never passed out. I had hoped it would be easy. I have a gun but I'd really rather die by hanging myself from the doorknob and compressing the carotid arteries while still being able to breathe. With a gun I'd leave a huge mess behind.

I also looking at this,but media never giving full details about how to do this exactly.

I just discovered the book "Last Five Acts" that someone posted on here, and it goes into detail about the compression method. I'm going to try the tourniquet method next, using a pair of pantyhose and a wooden kitchen spoon to tighten it while I'm lying on the bed so the spoon catches on the pillow and won't unwind.
