National News // June 7, 2017

A girl in Solothurn suffered serious injuries when a social media prank went wrong.

facebook Lava challenge leads to injuries in Solothurn

The challenge, ‘The Ground is Lava’, challenges anyone to get off the ground – as if it was red hot. There are already thousands of videos on You Tube showing people jumping onto stairs or walls.

The girl leapt onto a railing across a bridge and fell 4 meters on the other side onto concrete steps.

A now deleted Facebook post says the girl is recovering well. Solothurn police are asking people to behave sensibly when accepting on-line challenges.
