A 10-year-old girl died of a TikTok challenge


Throughout, the Italian little girl videotaped herself as she tried to complete a mentally ill TikTok challenge.

There are a lot of TikTok trends, such as the proliferation of sailor songs, but unfortunately it is no exaggeration to say that there are fewer of them. On the platform, which is especially popular among young people, one can find far more simple content or downright life-threatening challenges. The latter category includes the completely insane “blackout challenge “, which recently led to a tragedy in Italy.

The essence of the blackout challenge is that the person who completes the challenge strangles himself until he loses consciousness, and in the meantime he videos it all the way through. A 10-year-old Sicilian girl also tried this challenge: she wrapped a belt around her own neck and held her breath as she campaigned the whole thing. She finally strangled herself.

The 10-year-old Italian girl would not have been able to register for TikTos anyway, as the minimum age for users is 13, but this can of course be easily avoided by children. As a result of the tragic events, the Italian authorities have forced the operators of the application to block by 15 February all profiles whose owner cannot prove that they are already 13 years old.

According to Reuters Chinese ByteDance behind TikTok has not yet commented on the terrible accident.
