A deadly trick disguised as a children’s fairy game has outraged Russian parents after a young girl was badly burned. The web game, modeled after the cartoon series Winx Club: School of Witches, instructed unsuspecting children how to become “fire fairies” by igniting their gas stoves on fire while saying “magic words.”
Five-year-old Sofia Ezhova was the victim of this horrible prank and suffered deadly burns all over her body. Her mother is outraged.
The online game instructions say: “At midnight when everybody is asleep, get up from your bed and go around the room three times, then say the magical words: “Alfey kingdom, sweet little fairies, give me the power, I’m asking you.”
“Then go to the kitchen silently, so no one notices you or the magic of the words will disappear. Switch on the gas stove, all four burners. But do not light it. You don’t want to get burns, do you?”
“Then go to sleep. The magic gas will come to you, you will breathe it while sleeping and in the morning, when you wake up, say: “Thank you Alfeya, I’ve become a fairy.” And you will became a real fairy of fire.”
Police are investigating what some officials say might be a “suicide game” and plan to prosecute the criminals to the fullest extent of the law.
