Doctors Now Warning Parents About the latest Social Media Stupidity To Go Viral The TikTok Skull Breaker Challenge Being Potentially Life-Threatening.
Picking up where their Eating Tide-Pod stupidity left off is clueless children moronic attempt to risk self-harm for a chance at social media self-glorification called the TikTok Skull Breaker Challenge.
The ‘Skull Breaker Challenge’ is now being roundly condemned by doctors as it goes viral across social media.
The “skull breaker challenge” has reached vast proportions on TikTok, according to Yahoo and the asinine stunt goes like this:
- Three participants line up. In many cases, the one in the middle does not know what is to come, though a cell phone or other camera is set up to record the event for social media posterity.
- Then everybody jumps straight up.
- To the glee of the ones on each end, they kick the feet out from under the one in the middle so that person lands on his or her head and back.
Good times for everyone huh? Except, of course, the person in the middle.
But it wasn’t that hilarious for one parent, Valerie Hodson.
She shared the results of her son becoming the victim of the TikTok Skull Breaker Challenge on her Facebook page.
“On Wednesday my son was asked to do a jumping contest with his 2 ‘friends’, when he jumped up, the 2 boys kicked him, as hard as they could, so his legs flew out in front of him. He landed hard flat on his back and head, as he struggled to get up he lost consciousness, he fell forward landing on his face,” she wrote. “The school monitor ran to his side, all the while the 2 boys were snickering and laughing as his stiff unconscious body lay on the asphalt.”
“Fast forward at the hospital, he has a head injury, stiches in his face, severe cuts inside his mouth and 2 front teeth I have to keep on eye on. This apparently is a Tik Tok viral prank being filmed and gaining likes on social media.”
Another parent Teri Wimmer Smith shared a similar story on her Facebook page.
That TikTok Skull Breaker Challenge resulted in her son suffering “two broken bones in his wrist, and surgery will have to be done”
“Parents teach your kids that this crap is dangerous,” she added.
