Social media is becoming a bigger problem for our youth day by day.
Not only it corrupting their minds, but now it’s actually harming them and in some cases taking their lives.
According to reports, a 10-year-old girl in Italy was pronounced “brain dead” after doing the viral TikTok “black out challenge.”
The challenge reportedly involves a participant to choke themselves until they pass out.
The young girl apparently used a belt for this challenge and unintentionally asphyxiated herself.
A 10-year-old girl in Italy was declared brain-dead after she attempted the so-called “Blackout Challenge” on TikTok, according to local reports.
The dangerous game — also known as the “passout challenge” and “the fainting game” — dares participants to choke themselves until they pass out for several seconds.
But the challenge turned tragic when the child, who tied a belt around her neck, accidentally asphyxiated herself, Italian news agency ANSA reported.
The girl was rushed to a hospital in Palermo Thursday, the outlet said. She arrived in cardiac arrest and was soon declared brain-dead by doctors.
Her parents have given permission for their daughter’s organs to be donated, ANSA reported, indicating that she would soon be taken off life support.
Experts have warned that the trend is dangerous and can cause fainting, brain damage and seizures.
TikTok users are encouraged to flag anybody engaged in the challenge by clicking the symbol that says “Report.”
This is just breaks our hearts.
Our thoughts and prayers are with this family and we hope that this death will end this mindless “challenge” and save the life of many others.
If Big Tech wasn’t so focused on shutting down others free speech, then maybe they could’ve caught this terrifying trend and put an end to it.
