Dangerous TikTok 'skull-breaker challenge' leaves Cherry Hill teen with concussion

Thanks to Nancy from e2today for sharing the 6abc story.

Continuous discussion about kids’ engagement online and with social media is critical. Often, kids believe if they go viral they will become famous. However, they may go viral for all the wrong reasons. See this local story about the ‘skull-breaker’ challenge on TikTok. 👇
