A few months ago, there were lots of stories circulating the Internet about the Blue Whale Challenge. This sinister ‘game’ targeted teens all over the world by putting them through a series of dangerous challenges with the final one being suicide.
Initially, experts believed that the game was nothing more than an elaborate Internet hoax, but after several cases were reported all around the world, it appears that the game is very real.
Although interest in the game has seemingly died down, a recent story out of Russia as put the Blue Whale back in the spotlight.
Authorities believe that a teenage student named Andrey Emelyannikov recently completed the challenge and took not only his own life, but the life of a local teacher.
