Iowa - Teen Lands in the ICU After Taking Viral Dance “Kiki Challenge”

||| @KCRG |||

Another viral and insane internet challenge has led to danger and harm to a gullible teenager. The explosive dance ” In My Feelings”’ known as the “’Kiki” challenge has sent one Iowa teen in the hospital after she attempted it to horrific results.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Thousands of fans worldwide have been posting videos of themselves jumping out of moving cars dancing to a Drake song. 18-year-old Anna Worden says all parents and teens need to hear her story. <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; KCRG (@KCRG) <a href="">July 31, 2018</a></blockquote>

Eighteen-year-old Anna Worden was also lured to try to complete the challenge last week prompting her to jump out of a moving car. It was a move and a flawed decision she would regret later.

Worden recalled: "The last thing I remember was opening the door. So apparently I got out and tripped and fell and hit my head.”

The incident left the teen unconscious. She was rushed to a nearby hospital, then airlifted to Iowa City. She was already at the ICU when she woke up.

The said challenge started more innocently and a lot less harmless with people filming themselves dancing to Drake’s new song, “In My Feelings.” But the viral internet challenge has taken a turn for more dangerous stuff when it’s escalated to some people choosing to record themselves jumping out of moving cars to dance just as the song plays on.

The clear and present danger the challenge poses to those joining in is so huge prompting police and safety officials in communities around the world to issue warnings for people not to fall for the said challenge.

Worden is a recent graduate of Pleasant Valley High School, and a dancer all her life, falsely believed that the said challenge would be a “’fun idea” while driving out with friends on the night of July 23.

The teen suffered from a fractured skull, had blood clots in her ear and bleeding in her brain — just because she was trying to take part in a viral trend. She has certainly learned the hard, painful way. She shares now: "Be more careful about the challenges and fads that you see that are going around. It may seem fun, and it may seem like it's easy, but at the same time they could be so dangerous.”

Not only did Worden hurt herself, but caused tremendous worry to her parents. Now, they have to watch their dancer-daughter learn to walk unaided in the hospital room.

The teen would be discharged from the hospital soon but will need more outpatient therapy once she gets home.
