"Fire Challenge" Leaves Child Badly Burned

posted by Mary Booth - 

Can we put an end to these Internet Challenges?

The Keke Challenge had kids jumping out of moving cars, so they could dance.

The Tide Pod Challenge had people eating laundry detergent.

The Cinnamon Challenge had people eating a spoonful of cinnamon and trying not to choke.

Now the Fire Challenge has people setting themselves on fire.

Why? So they can post a video on Twitter or YouTube and become an instant celebrity.

This is beyond dangerous.  They pour rubbing alcohol on their skin and light a match... film it... then douse the flames with water.

It went horribly wrong the other day... and a 12 year old girl is hospitalized in intensive care.  It's not the first time.

HOW do we get people to stop accepting these challenges?
