This winter there’s a new thing called the “snow challenge” which involves people jumping in the snow completely naked, or you can decide to jump in with a bathing suit, or in just your underwear. People across America are doing this and videotaping themselves doing it, some people are encountering consequences from this challenge. You can view the snow challenges on YouTube Facebook, Vine, and other social networking sites, which thousands of people have uploaded themselves doing it. But this is and/or can be life threatening to some, prolonged exposure to the cold can cause the body to go into shock which can lead to death according to the Genesee County Health Department. Like any other challenge, it’s all for fun and it’s just another weird thing that’s around that people decide to do.
