Teen suffers disgusting injuries because of the ‘hot water challenge’

Following Indianapolis teen, Kyland Clark (unwittingly) partaking in the dare, WXIN reported the boy being left with second-degree burns following a friend pulling a prank on him last week.

"There's a limit to what you should do in a challenge and what you shouldn't", the teen said. While he was sleeping, his friend poured water on him as a joke.
