Matthew David Hubal, 22, was pronounced dead at Centinela Mammoth Hospital. The accident occurred about 3 a.m., the Mono County Sheriff's Department said.

Fill a large brown envelope about 70% with shaving foam.
Close over the flap but don't close it.

When you hear them walking towards it, jump on the back end of the envelope and shaving foam will spray everywhere.
