The game starts when school children place ice on their bodies and then put ice on top of it, a process that can cause burns to the skin. The game continues when the video of the event is put on YouTube and others ‘rank’ how ‘cool’ and ‘awesome’ the wounds look.
While the game has not caused any deaths, it is causing traumatic skin injuries and the complications could lead to death. Parents should have a talk to their children about this dangerous game, as it is expected to be popular in high schools this coming school year. The image above is from a recent story where an unidentified 12-year-old played the game and received the injury shown.
