An 8-year-old girl from Florida, Ki'ari Pope, died several months after she drank boiling water from a straw after her cousin dared her to participate in the challenge last year, CBS 12 reported.

The "challenge", which made national headlines a year ago and has been circulating online since at least 2014, consists of someone either drinking boiling water through a straw, or having the water poured on them.

Kyland Clark said he and his friends watched videos of the challenge on YouTube before he fell asleep.

The so-called "Hot Water Challenge" is exactly what it sounds like: Users on the internet boil hot water, then pour it on themselves or unsuspecting friends.

Told Kyland, 'My skin just fell off my chest, and then I looked in the mirror and I had skin falling off here and, on my face'. Conrad reportedly suffered first- and second-degree burns. He spent a week in the hospital, undergoing treatment.

The "Hot Water Challenge" made national headlines in 2017, and it had been making its rounds on social media for about three years before that. "When I came to my senses, the water got hot and I just got up and ripped my shirt off", Kyland said.

Last summer, an 11-year-old girl in NY suffered face and chest burns after friends poured hot water on her. She said, "To see my baby all burnt up like that, it was heartbreaking".

"It's suggesting to people that they can try it and they won't be hurt, but they will be, I can guarantee it", Bartkus told Fox 59.

"If your friends are telling you to do this, they aren't good friends", Dr. Ed Bartkus, of Indiana University Health, was quoted by Fox 59 as saying. Don't take it overboard, ' Kyland told WLTW.

Doctors said they are hopeful that Clark's injuries won't be permanent.

Kyland is recovering from his injuries.
