A 10-year-old girl was found dead in his home by his parents, after causing suffocation through TikTok.
A 10-year-old girl was found unconscious on Thursday at his home in Palermo, Italy with a belt tied around his neck. His parents immediately took him to the local hospital in Palermo, where he was found to be brain dead.
According to the police authorities, the girl drowned by herself, during a Blackout challenge, through the social network platform TikTok. Her parents decided to donate the girl's organs.
The Blackout Challenge, and a milder variant of it, called the Passout Challenge, were released on TikTok last year.
Experts have warned of the dangers associated with the challenges, such as fainting, seizures, brain damage and even death.
