A Texas woman is reportedly in critical condition after she attempted TikTok’s bone-shattering “Milk Crate Challenge.”
According to social media reports, the woman was offered $5 from a group of men to take the challenge at a Dallas gas station.
Cell phone video shows the woman attempting to climb the unstable milk crate pyramid. She gets halfway up but falls backwards, hitting her head on the concrete.
Fist responders arrived and transported the woman to a hospital. One EMT said she may not make it, according to MTONews.com.
The challenge originally began on TikTok but has spread to other social media platforms.
The light milk crates are stacked to form a step pyramid. To win the challenge, the person must climb to the top crate without toppling the pyramid.
Serious injuries have been reported. Three people were shot dead in Shreveport, Louisiana wile filming a milk crate challenge.
TikTok has officially issued a statement warning users about the potential dangers of attempting the milk crate challenge.
“TikTok prohibits content that promotes or glorifies dangerous acts, and we remove videos and redirect searches to our Community Guidelines to discourage such content. We encourage everyone to exercise caution in their behavior whether online or off.”
The video has been removed from YouTube.
