Iowa teen seriously hurt in "Kiki" challenge gone wrong

Please don't jump out of your car and dance to Drake, NTSB pleads

A Florida man's attempt at the "In My Feelings" challenge went horribly wrong when he was hit by a auto during the stunt.

An 18-year-old Iowa woman wound up in intensive care last week after attempting a viral dance challenge that left her with a severe head injury.

"That's when it hit me like 'Wow, I'm actually in the University of Iowa hospitals because I tried to do some little challenge everyone's doing now, ' " she said, "and I'm the one that got majorly hurt". Canadian rapper Drake's latest song "In My Feelings" (Scorpion album) has become the latest trend that has gone viral on social media with several thousand of people doing it and posting the videos on their social media accounts.

The challenge is known as #InMyFeelings, #DoTheShiggy or the #KekeChallenge, and sees wannabe or professional dancers jump out of a moving auto (going at about 10mph), do the routine and then jump back in, while the driver films the whole thing. "Kiki Challenge may get you a Kick of Law not Kick of Dance".

You have to hand it to him, he tried it, but he definitely needed a few more attempts before giving us this...rather questionable attempt at the dance challenge!

The Halasuru Gate Traffic Police in Bengaluru recently deployed a "Yamaraja" on the roads to warn people of the dangers of traffic violations like not wearing a helmet and overspeeding. With Indians also taking part in the challenge, the police in India have also taken to social media to warn the people against the hazards of the challenge.

Anna has been dancing since she was very young and thought this would be a fun idea. "I will always remember that".

She says the experience taught her her a lesson she wants to share with others. She says they may seem fun and easy but they could also be risky.

"Be more careful about the challenges and fads that are going around", she told WQAD. Anna was unconscious after falling and she was quickly transported to a hospital.
