Teen boy suffers serious burns after 'Hot Water Challenge'
The boiling water was poured on Kyland Clark, 15, as he slept. He suffered second-degree burns to his body and face, Fox News reported. The incident occurred after Clark and his friends had watched videos of the challenge on YouTube.
Clark spent a week in the hospital. His doctors are hopeful that pigment will return in Clark's face within a few months.
Last summer, an 11-year-old girl in New York suffered face and chest burns after friends poured hot water on her. Also last summer, an 8-year-old girl suffered fatal throat injuries after she tried to drink boiling water through a straw, Fox News reported.
