Just because it’s on the internet, doesn’t mean you have to do it.

That’s a lesson two New Jersey teens are learning the hard way as they face charges for participating in a viral TikTok stunt. Police in Cherry Hill say the unidentified minors tried out the “skull-breaker challenge” on a 13-year-old classmate.

In the filmed challenge, one person is tricked into jumping into the air with someone else, while another person kicks out the feet of the tricked individual, causing them to crash into the ground.

The boy suffered a seizure and concussion as a result, having to be hospitalized for two days. The teen suspects have been charged with counts of aggravated assault and endangering an injured victim.
