‘Hot Water Challenge’ Leaves Teen With 2nd Degree Burns

Boiling Water

A dangerous new challenge is picking up steam.

The “Hot Water Challenge” involves someone pouring boiling hot water on an unsuspecting victim.

It happened to Indiana teen, Kyland Clark. 

The prank was done by his friend after looking up YouTube challenges the night before. 

Clark woke up startled and could see the injuries immediately. 

“My skin just fell off my chest, and then I looked in the mirror and I had skin falling off here and, on my face,” Clark told Fox59

Clark was quickly admitted to the hospital where doctors told him his skin would take several months to heal.

The family now is warning others of the dangers of the “Hot Water Challenge.”
