'Hot Water Challenge' Leaves Indiana Teen With Second-Degree Burns

In Florida, a variation of the challenge tragically killed an 8-year-old girl last summer after she attempted to drink boiling hot water through a straw.

Kyland Clark, from Indianapolis, said he was left with second-degree burns when a friend pulled a prank on him last week as part of the "Hot Water Challenge", news station WXIN reported.

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 chose to try the internet prank on Clark after he fell asleep. When he fell asleep, he said his friend heated up some water and poured it on him.
