Major Development After ‘Hot Water Challenge’ Prank Sends Girl To Hospital (Photos)

NY1 reports that the police are planning to make the charge against the 12-year-old a felony. There was an adult in the house at the time of the incident, but it is not known if the adult was aware of the problem Jamoneisha was having with the other girl.

Jamoneisha’s mother, Ebony Merritt, says her daughter was the victim of bullying and the incident has deeply affected her.

Others are speculating that Jamoneisha was the victim of the “hot water challenge” that has one person pour boiling water on a sleeping person to wake them up.

I think any halfway intelligent 12-year-old would know that dumping boiling water on another person could have a dangerous outcome. Share away, people.
