An 8-year-old girl in Boynton Beach, Florida, died on Monday due
to injuries she sustained after reportedly taking the YouTube
"Hot Water Challenge."

According to WPBF, Ki'ari Pope and her cousins watched a video
in March that showed people drinking boiling water through a
straw then dared one another to do the same.

Pope took the risk and ended up with burns in her throat and
mouth. The girl had been recovering, but when she woke up on
July 30 she was having difficulty breathing.

Not long after, she collapsed and was unresponsive, reports WPTV.

Paramedics rushed Pope to the hospital, but she could not be
revived and was pronounced dead the following morning.

Diane Johnson, the young girl's aunt, told WPEC, "Parents, talk
to your kids about these challenges. Don't just give them your
phone and let them go by. Watch what they are doing."

Come on! See was eight years old. A lot of kids that turn out to be
reasonably smart do stupid things as a kid. This was a tragedy.

Why do people from Flordia force children to drink boiling water
from straws?

Is that why they're the state that voted for Trump and also were
the big deal back in 2000 when Bush became President because they
were too dumb to use a voting machine properly?

I liked Florida back in the 1980s when Metro-Dade Detective James
"Sonny" Crockett had a boat and an alligator named Elvis.
