A failed attempt at the viral craze known as the "KiKi Challenge" landed a teen girl in the intensive care unit. "I ran to her I said, 'Did you get that on video?'" he said.
The Kiki challenge requires the participant to alight from a moving auto dance to the song and then climb back into the vehicle. Already, people have been seen running into objects, falling down and even getting hit by cars while filming themselves dancing for the challenge.
"We were over by the roundabout, and I thought it would be a fun idea to do the Kiki Challenge", explains Anna. But since the trend took off about a month ago, it's escalated to a new, risky level, with some people recording themselves jumping out of moving cars to dance. Anna had fractured her skull, had blood clots in her ear and bleeding in her brain - all from trying to take part in a viral trend.
You have to hand it to him, he tried it, but he definitely needed a few more attempts before giving us this...rather questionable attempt at the dance challenge! "I've deleted the videos from my social media accounts", she said. Koepe says for those who want to participate in this challenge safety must always be a priority so he encourages participants to complete this challenge in a place like a parking lot next to a parked vehicle where they are safely away from other drivers. She was unconscious and rushed to a hospital.
Reacting to this, Nivedita apologized and requested her supporters not to take up such challenges."I did it for fun and was not aware that it was risky". Another Sola resident, who had accepted the #KiKichallenge some days ago, says, "This challenge needs a lot of creativity and planning but people must ensure safety first".
