Parents are using Twitter to share a dire warning that the “Skullbreaker challenge” could result in fatal injuries.
Kids are doing the incredibly stupid and dangerous challenge to create viral videos on TikTok.
Yahoo reports Social media hosts various challenges every now and then where people complete a task and upload the video online. A few of the more popular social media challenges in recent times have been the #KikiChallenge, #BroomChallenge and #BottleCapChallenge.
Now, a new challenge has taken over social media platforms, especially TikTok. However, the new ‘Skullbreaker Challenge’ is going viral for all the wrong reasons.
In the challenge, three people stand side by side in a row. Now, the person standing in the middle jumps off, while the other two standing on the side kick the leg of the jumping person, making him/her fall. The aim of this bizarre challenge is to make the jumper fall on his or her back, hard enough to cause severe head injuries.
While teenagers may find it funny and intriguing, parents and adults are concerned about the consequences of the challenge. Several kids have been hurt due to this Skullbreaker Challenge, causing concerns among their parents.
A new challenge going viral on social media, called “tripping jump" or “skull breaker”, has become a cause of concern for parents.
