S.J. Kids Facing Charges After Friend Gets Hurt from ‘Skull-Breaker Challenge’
The 'skull-breaker' may have seemed like a harmless TikTok challenge to two local juveniles. But they're now in big trouble with authorities after a friend got really hurt.
It's been a month since the 13-year-old son of Stacy and Marc Shenker received a concussion after being encouraged to take the challenge. The Cherry Hill middle-schooler continues to suffer from symptoms, like headaches, that haven't gone away, 6abc.com reports.
To show just how serious and dangerous this 'skull-breaker challenge' can be, two kids have now been formally charged with third-degree aggravated assault and third-degree endangering an injured victim by Camden County Prosecutor's Office.
The 'skull-breaker', which went viral on the social media site TikTok, challenges two people (standing on the outside) tricking a third person (standing in the middle) into jumping in the air and then kicking their feet out from under them. Stupidity at it's finest, eh?
I hope seeing people actually facing legal consequences from participating in this challenge will be enough to stop others from doing the same.
