"Hot Water Challenge" leaves teenager severely burned

An Indiana family is raising the red flag about what some have dubbed the "Hot Water Challenge".

According to a report by WXIN Fox 59, the "challenge" is to drink boiling water through a straw or have it poured on your body.

Last week, Kyland Clark says he and a friend were looking up the challenge on YouTube when they chose to prank each other. The friend poured boiling water on Kyland while he was asleep.

"And then, I looked down at my chest, and my skin just fell off my chest". "And then, like, I looked down at my chest, and my skin just fell off my chest, and then I went and I looked in a mirror and then I had skin falling off right here and on my face", he said.

Kyland had second-degree burns on his, back chest and face. Kyland's doctors say he should heal. He spent a week in the hospital, undergoing treatment. For his mother Andrea, it was one of her worst nightmare. "To see my baby, all burnt up like that.it's heart-breaking", Andrea Clark said. "It's suggesting to people that they can try it and they won't be hurt, but they will be". Last year, an 8-year-old died in Florida after attempting the challenge.

"If you're friends are telling you to do this, they aren't good friends", he said.

Kyland and his mother also want to make it known how unsafe the challenge is.

"There's a limit to what you should do in a challenge and what you shouldn't. Don't take it overboard", the 15-year-old said.

But for now, they're just glad the teenager is on the road to recovery. Doctors says his pigment should return in the next few months.
