The Ice Bucket Challenge, also known as the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, has been going viral across the Internet as people nominate one another to dump a bucket of ice on their head or decide giving money to charity, ALS research, is the better option for them.
Once nominated, the participant is supposed to film themselves having a bucket of ice water poured on their head. Once nominated they have 24 hours to comply or forfeit the challenge and instead, empty their wallet, giving to charity.
Last week, two teenagers nominated for this challenge tragically died from broken necks. Now a teen from Georgia has lost her life attempting to follow the trend. Melissa Roberts, 16, was challenged by her friends to participate in the Ice Bucket Challenge.
Again, her friends stood above her with a large tub which slipped out of their hands and fell on her head.
Authorities are urging peoplr to PLEASE use small buckets, not barrels to complete this challenge. This is getting out of hand!
