10-year-old boy lands in hospital from injuries over hot water challenge

A 10-year-old boy, Ashton Taylor, has landed in the hospital after he got injured in a viral challenge, called the Hot Water Challenge.

Ashton suffered second-degree burns on his stomach, legs, arm and fingers,  reports WSAV3.

He had been on the receiving end of the challenge at a sleepover when he woke up screaming after he said a 9-year-old boy poured boiling water on his chest and legs.

“I was screaming and they put me in another bed and I tried to calm down but I couldn’t because the pain was just on fire,” Ashton recalled.

His mom remembered when she got to the hospital that she could hear her son’s anguished cries in the hallway.

“It’s been a nightmare,” she said, adding, “I mean just blisters everywhere. It’s horrifying.”

Ashton and his mom hope sharing their nightmare will prevent another family from the same pain.

Meanwhile, calls have been going out, discouraging children and teens from participating in the Hot Water Challenge.
