Another stupid internet challenge.
Somehow, internet challenges find new ways to get children into trouble. Years ago, teens shoved down large amounts of cinnamon or attempted to drink whole gallons of milk. What was once just a funny way to get involved in internet antics has escalated to full-blown madness. While the "In My Feelings" challenge didn't end with too many injuries, there was still a fair share of people who got hurt trying to jump out of cars.
A few years back, the ice bucket challenge helped raise money and awareness for ALS. Teens took that idea and flipped it, opting to drench themselves or a friend in boiling hot water instead. 15-year-old Kyland Clark, who lives in Indianapolis, became a victim of the challenge when his friends poured boiling hot water on him while he was sleeping.
Clark told WNDU that he and his friend were looking up the challenge online before he went to sleep. While he was passed out, his friend boiled the hot water and dumped it on Clark. "I looked down at my chest, and my skin just fell off my chest, and then I went and I looked in a mirror and then I had skin falling off right here and on my face," Clark explained. The pigmentation on his face and chest are completely burned off. He was in the hospital for about a week following the incident, and his skin should return to normal within a few months.
