Somewhere on this ball we call "Earth"
 



"A 12-year-old Queens boy has suffered serious burns after he tried to light himself on fire for a YouTube "fire challenge" video.

Police say that the preteen, whose name has not been released, was inside his Far Rockaway home around 8:30 p.m. last night when he doused himself in rubbing alcohol and set himself on fire while standing in a bathtub. He wasn't able to turn the shower on to put the fire out though, and he suffered third-degree burns covering more than 40 percent of his body.

According to the Post, he was taken to the Nassau University Medical Center Burn Unit in critical condition, but is expected to live.

The "fire challenge" has been social media stunt for at least two years, with teens across the country burning themselves in the process." (More)
