'Hot Water Challenge' leaves Indiana teen severely burned

Kyland Clark 15 says his friend poured boiling water on him after the two looked up “Hot Water Challenge” videos online

MONDAY, July 30, 2018 (HealthDay News) - An Indianapolis teen suffered serious burns after his friends poured boiling hot water on him as part of fad called the "Hot Water Challenge".

15-year-old Kyland Clark is still wearing the scars of the risky "Hot Water Challenge", which involves drinking boiling water, or pouring it on a friend.

The 15-year-old Indianapolis, Ind., native told Fox 59 News this week that the pair had been looking up the "Hot Water Challenge" on YouTube last week when his friend made a decision to try the internet prank on Clark after he fell asleep. That's when the friend boiled the water and poured it on him. "The situation is here, so you can't like really just not deal with it", he said.

President Trump’s Lawyer Says He’s Not Sure If Collusion Is A Crime
He added that the team may be receptive to questions of obstruction "if they could show us one or two there, we can consider it". Giuliani says Trump could make a decision this week or next about whether to sit for an interview with Mueller.


"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", he told the station.

The social media challenge left the teen with second-degree burns to the face, and on his chest and back. He was confined in the hospital for a week as he received treatment. Last year, an 8-year-old died in Florida after attempting the challenge. The stupid viral challenges are very risky, and the Hot Water Challenge follows the same vein. The "challenge" involves drinking boiling water through a straw or pouring it on a friend.

"To see my baby, all burned up like that, it was heartbreaking", said Andrea, the teen's mother.

However, he was quick to realise his mistake as he immediately added, "Sorry, that's a bad mistake to make". Britain's new foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt's foray into global politics is off to an embarrassing start.


"It's suggesting to people that they can try it and maybe they won't be hurt, but they will be".

"There's a limit to what you should do in a challenge and what you shouldn't do". Don't take it overboard, ' Kyland told WLTW. Dr. Ed Bartkus, of IU Health in Indianapolis, told FOX 59 that participants and victims could suffer permanent disfigurement, or die from burns to their airway.

Kyland's mom Andrea still can't shake the sight of her son's injuries. Doctors says his pigment should return in the next few months.
