A Pennsylvania family is warning parents about a dangerous TikTok challenge after their 10-year-old daughter died attempting to hold her breath until she passed out.
Nyla Anderson, 10, passed away on December 12 in her bedroom at her family's Chester home after attempting the viral 'Blackout Challenge.'
The online dare, which has been linked to several child deaths, encourages participants to hold their breath until they pass out. While it predates social media, the deadly has recently made the rounds on TikTok.
Now, Nyla's mother, Tawainna Anderson, is warning other parents about the deadly trend.
'Make sure you check your kids' phones,' Tawainna told ABC 7.
'You never know what you might find on their phones. You wouldn't think 10-year-olds would try this. They're trying because they're kids and they don't know better.'
