James Shores, 15, was burned to death after his entire body was engulfed in flames. The Buffalo, New York native as tempting the oddly popular Facebook fire challenge.
The #FireChallenge involves covering the naked portion of the body with some type of flammable liquid and setting themselves on fire while being filmed by a friend.
Shores doused himself with alcohol and was set ablaze by his friends. Those who participate in this “game,” usually do so inside of the shower in case the fire spreads. In Shores case, he was not near the shower or any other water source. His friends battled unsuccessfully to put the fire out, and he later died from his injuries.
A tasteless picture of James engulfed in flames is making it’s rounds around news outlets and the internet. I declined to indulge in the madness.
FaceBook is in the process of deleting all #FireChallege videos off of their website.
I saw one yesterday where the boys own mother was filming it. Yeah, I said his mother. He barely made it back to the shower because he was running around frantically with everyone trying to put it out and get him back into the bathroom. It sounds stupid because it is stupid.
Warn your kids that this nonsense isn’t funny or cute; just potentially fatal.
15 Year-Old Boy Dies After Attempting #FireChallenge
A huge ad being shopped by fans of Miami Heat was shopped by two Cleveland area publications was denied out of respect to LeBron. One of the publications was The Cleveland Plain Dealer. The ad was a photo of two Heat championship rings with the words, You’re Welcome, LeBron below them.
Funny, but I didn’t see any of them cramped up, sweating and hitting nothing but net on any occasion. Did you? The ad should have read You’re Welcome, Miami. Come on now!! Entitlement!!
See the ad next
I’m not quite sure what the festivities were, but it looks like thinks took a funny turn. In the clip, an already shirtless LeBron appears on stage, and takes off his shoes. He then autographs them both and throws them to the anxious fans. Then he takes off his shorts and does the same. Simply Groovy!!
Watch vid up next…….
