Newest Thing? "Skull-Breaker Challenge"-Doctors Are Warning To Not Do

Even though the name alone describes why no one shouldn't participate, doctors are warning against taking part in the "Skull Breaker" Challenge. Originating in Spain and popularized on TikTok, the goal is to knock someone off balance, causing a fall onto his or her head.

Speaking to Yahoo! Lifestyle, Dr. Nathan Richards of The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center lists the possible "life-threatening" injuries from playing "including, but not limited to, bruising, hematoma, skull fracture, neck strain, neck fracture, concussion and long-term complications of concussion, bleeding in or around the brain, loss of consciousness, paralysis and death." On Facebook, two mothers share what happened to their sons, with one receiving stitches in his face and the other with broken bones. What other dumb "challenges" have you come across online?
