Authorities in the U.K. are warning parents to be extra watchful of their teens following the release of the online game craze “Blue Whale Challenge,” which eggs participants to take their own lives. The Express said the disturbing game originated from Russia and is reportedly the cause of many teen deaths through suicide. The group behind the online game gives participating teens challenging tasks that they need to complete within 50 days. While the initial tasks are fear-

inducing such as watching horror films and waking up at odd hours, other challenges range from the sickening to absolutely terrifying such as self-harm and eventually, suicide. Woodlands School deputy headmaster David Wright warned parents of the existence of the sick game. “We have discovered a game through the police that we think you should be aware of. It is called the Blue Whale game and is played via many social media platforms,” the school official said. FULL REPORT
