A fatal game called 'Blackout Challenge' has been trending on TikTok, and it’s on the rise among children and teenagers. Tik-Tok has been criticised in the past for allowing dangerous challenges like The 'Blackout' to spread. 
The Blackout Challenge has reportedly claimed the lives of two youngsters.
This particular deadly challenge- ‘Blackout’ is not new. According to a Press Release in 2008, by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, at least 82 youth died as a result of playing what has been called "the choking game"
