The phrase “don’t try this at home” has never seemed more real and with more and more people aspiring to be like the people they watch on YouTube, you can see why it’s quite worrying what people are watching and copying.
14 year old Skylar Fish was with his mates doing the popular duct tape challenge but it didn’t quite end as planned. Unlike a lot of the people on YouTube who do this prank, Skylar’s friends taped him up with a chair as support so he was free to fall over.
Skylar hit his head on a window ledge and has injuries that resemble someone who had been in a car accident or someone who had been kicked by a horse. Skylar’s injuries may be permanent, and a simple challenge will have changed his life.
We love YouTube as much as the next fanatic but we need to be careful when we are taping ourselves to things! Be safe guys!
