Guardian Angel

A game played in Manhattan by teenagers at the Our Lady of Fatima Academy. Participants take a picture of their intended victim as they are seen by the angel statue at the 59th street entrance to Central Park on their cellular phone.

Then, the image is sent as a text message to a number corresponding to the time the picture is taken. If the image is taken at 12:35PM, it is sent to 1235. If it is taken at 5:21PM, it is sent to 1721, and so on and so forth.

Supposedly, once the message is sent, the person or persons in the picture will die mysteriously within 24 hours. Originally considered to be just an urban legend, the game itself fell under suspicion when a group of teenagers at the Academy wound up dead, and students began to be suspended for using the game to harass each other.
