Don’t fall for the “skull breaker” challenge
A new challenge that’s gone viral on certain social platforms may lead to serious injuries or even death. Doctors warn against anyone, including teens who are filming the trick to post online, about the possible consequences.
Referred to as the “Skull Breaker Challenge,” it calls for three people to stand next to each other. The two on the outside jump up first. Then the middle person is told to jump up next. When he or she does, the two on the outside trip the middle person by kicking their legs out from under them. There are plenty of videos posted to show how it’s done.
Teens have suffered concussions, bruises, and lost consciousness. Doctors warn of possible death from this challenge. Watch a video to see how it’s done, and if asked or challenged to participate, it would be wise to take a pass on this.
