The "Hot Water Challenge": Sleeping Teen Suffers Severe Burns After Friends Throw Boiling Water On Him

The latest challenge is one that parents need to be aware of. Not only is it terribly risky, but it has been getting a lot of news coverage lately for its serious and lasting consequences. It can cause very bad scarring and sometimes even permanent damage.

It's called "The Hot Water Challenge" and prompts one person to take a container of boiling hot water and throw it on an unsuspecting person. Another version has a person drinking it.

It takes mere seconds for the boiling hot water to cause third degree burns when it hits 140 degrees Fahrenheit. There unfortunately are YouTube videos surfacing that show kids exactly how to carry out this challenge.

Sadly, eight-year-old Ki'ari Pope passed away in March after being dared to drink boiling water through a straw. She ended up hospitalized with a tracheotomy, deaf and with chronic repiratory problems.

One teenager, Nickolas Conrad, was a victim of the challenge where his friends threw hot water on him while he slept.
