Internet challenges have become all the rage in recent years. While some of them are fun or funny or for a good cause, parents still need to be aware of some potentially dangerous challenges circulating around the web.

One young man just had his life changed forever after some his alleged friends made him the victim of a horrible "challenge" with hot water. He now has burn injuries across his body and has suffered extreme pain!

"A 15-year-old teen suffered second-degree burns to his face and body after his friends allegedly poured boiling hot water on him as he slept in a bid to complete the 'Hot Water Challenge,'" reported Fox News.

“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,” said the young boy.

He was quickly rushed to the hospital and remained under medical care for a week. Now, doctors are simply hoping they can get his wounds to heal and look normal again.

“If your friends are telling you to do this, they aren’t good friends,” Dr. Ed Bartkus, of Indiana University Health, told Fox 59.
