'Hot Water Challenge' reportedly leaves teen with second-degree burns

The so-called "Hot Water Challenge" involves drinking boiling water, or pouring it on a friend.

The "challenge" calls for boiling water to be poured on a friend who typically doesn't see it coming (some people participate willingly), or drinking boiling water from a straw. Hopefully the lesson Clark learned can promulgate throughout the internet faster than the challenge itself, showing young people that boiling water, whether tossed on someone or ingested, is nothing to laugh about. Kyland has been in the hospital for a week receiving treatment for his injuries.

"If you hear them talking about challenges, I don't care what type of challenge it is, let them know that it's not a good idea", she said. Kyland Clark said his friends meant to play a simple prank on him, inspired by the "Hot Water Challenge". "I looked down at my chest and my skin just fell off my chest and then I went and looked in a mirror and I had skin falling off right here and on my face".

Andrea hopes her son's experience encourages parents to talk to their children about the dangers of these internet fads. "I'm just blessed that he's still breathing".

"To see my baby, all burned up like that, it was heartbreaking", his mum Andrea Clark told WXIN. Don't take it overboard, ' Kyland told WLTW. A 10-year-old boy in North Carolina was taken to the hospital second and third degree burns after trying the Hot Water Challenge with his step-brother just days earlier.

He did acknowledge, however, that the border funding issue was unlikely to be resolved before the November midterm elections. Trump campaigned on the promise of building a border wall to deter illegal immigration and making Mexico pay for it.

"It's suggesting to people that they can try it and they won't be hurt, but they will be, I can guarantee it", Dr. Ed Bartkus said.

Kyland has a long road to recovery ahead.

"It could have been worse".

Kyland's doctors say he should heal from his injuries.

Clark said he was startled awake, and that his injuries were immediately apparent. His doctors are hopeful that pigment will return in Clark's face within a few months.
