Sometimes it becomes really hard to understand the reason behind these stupid challenges which are being adopted by young people as a sign of manhood and for entertainment. Some weeks ago a challenge of the sort called as “Tide Pod Challenge” reserved a viral spot on the social media. It involves the participant eating a tide pod which is indeed a deadly thing to perform. In the past, there were other challenges which went quite viral on the social media. Today we are going to report you about a new challenge which went wrong during its execution and almost took the life of a 17-year-old guy. The challenge ended up with a bullet in the head of this teen guy who is now fighting for his life at the Tennessee Hospital. The teenager is injured, he’s in a critical condition.
Sherman Lackland, 21-year-old was arrested and charged with illegal possession of a weapon after he accidentally shot right in the head of his friend while performing the ‘no lackin challenge’.
This new challenge has been going viral on the social media with quite a huge frequency and it involves young people pulling guns on each other and then recording the responses of the participants. It asks the participants to not budge for a second if someone pulls a gun on them. This kind of fearlessness which is required in the challenge is normally required by gangsters since they are to be prepared for every situation at hand.
This challenge actually tests the readiness of an individual in a situation when a gun or firearm is pulled on him. The teenager and another guy was sitting in a booth at E’Cafe in Memphis when they decided to play the challenge. The manager of the E’Cafe reported the police saying, “All young kids, They were sitting there talking, and they started showing each other a gun and it accidentally went off.”
When they pulled off the gun the accident happened and it was really lucky for the teenager that a doctor was sitting in the same restaurant so when the gun went off the doctor stood up immediately in order to give the first aid response to the boy. The teenager was then taken to the Methodist University Hospital and right now he is in critical condition.
An eyewitness said, “[There was] a real loud bang, then I see the guy across from [Lackland] fall in the floor. He started grabbing him and telling him to get up and then he was kind of mad and was swinging stools and stuff.”
