Every Parent Needs to See What This "Safe" Internet Challenge Did to a 10-Year-Old Boy

Post by Lauren Levy.

From the salt and ice challenge to the blue whale challenge, parents have been warned about different internet "games" that are sending kids to the hospital. After talking to her three kids about these dangerous trends, Cath Matar never thought she'd find her own child covered in blood because he tried to copy something he saw online. Yet, when 10-year-old Leo came across the "pass out safely" challenge on YouTube, he didn't realize there was any harm in giving it a try -- it said that it was safe after all and it wasn't asking him to ingest or do anything "painful" to his body.
