Following Indianapolis teen, Kyland Clark (unwittingly) partaking in the dare, WXIN reported the boy being left with second-degree burns following a friend pulling a prank on him last week.
Captivating the imaginations of teens is a new social media challenge known as the hot water challenge which has left one 15 year old IN boy seriously burned.

Physicians claim they are seeing more injured patients in in the ER because of risky social media challenges such as the Hot Water Challenge.
The "challenge" calls for boiling water to be poured on a friend who typically doesn't see it coming (some people participate willingly), or drinking boiling water from a straw.
According to doctors, they are seeing more patients being taken to emergency rooms due to viral internet challenges.

Ki'ari's family said that she watched videos of the challenge. It also involves people posting to social media videos of themselves performing the challenge on an unsuspecting person. However, it appears that teens have not learned about the dangers of the activity.
