WOMAN’S 12YO SON BECAME HUMAN FIREBALL AFTER ‘TIKTOK FIREBALL CHALLENGE’ WENT WRONG – NOW HE’S SCARRED FOR LIFE

A mother-of-two has revealed how her son became a human fireball after a dangerous 'TikTok challenge' went wrong. In August last year, Tiffany Roper, 35, from Arizona, US, woke up to her son, Corey, 12, screaming and on fire. He had attempted to create a fireball using 71% rubbing alcohol, on camera, while filming. The so-called ‘Tiktok fireball challenge’ had been trending on the social media channel and has caused other children to be severely burned. Corey suffered second and third degree burns all over his body and endured nine surgeries. Thankfully, he is recovering well, but is scarred for life. Now, Tiffany is speaking out to raise awareness of the dangers of fire, and to encourage other parents to talk to their children about the harm that challenges like these can cause. She’d also like for every video to be reviewed by social media owners before being allowed to be posted.
