A 10-year-old girl residing in Italy has been declared “brain-dead” after taking part in a challenge on the social media app TIKTok!
On the app, a “Blackout Challenge” is currently making the rounds where participants are encouraged to choke themselves until they pass-out from a lack of oxygen for some time. The 10-year-old girl in question took part in the challenge using a belt which she tied around her neck but then ended up choking and had to be rushed to a hospital in the town of Palermo.
The girl had a cardiac arrest and doctors soon said she was brand-dead and put on life-support. The girl’s parents have asked for her organs to be donated as she’ll likely be taken off life-support soon. TIKTok has now encouraged users to report anyone they see taking part in the challenge…let us know: HAVE YOU SEEN THIS DANGEROUS CHALLENGE ON TIKTOK YET? DO YOU USE TIKTOK???
