We’ve had the ghost pepper challenge, the ice bucket challenge, the cinnamon challenge… and the list goes on. Now, the latest viral craze “#CondomChallenge” involves filling it with water and dropping it on your friend’s head.
However, if the cond0m does not break, the participant is at risk for suffocation. That’s what happened to 17-year-old teenager Kirsten Nelson.
When Kirsten began the challenge, her friend filled up a cond0m with water and held it over her head. As you can see in the video below, her friend drops the cond0m with force as it wraps around Kirsten’s head with the water still in place.
“After I dropped it over her head we were all just cracking up,” said Casey. “Then our friend started yelling ‘she can’t breathe!’ That’s when someone ran in to try to get the cond0m off of her head, but it was on so tight and it would not break. She literally drowned to death inside of a cond0m. And it’s all my fault. I will never forgive myself.”
After about 15 minutes of CPR given by Kirsten’s friends, the ambulance arrived and pronounced her dead at the scene.
Make sure to let everyone know how dangerous this new trend is. You just might save a life.
