An Indianapolis teen suffered severe burns in an internet prank gone wrong.

"There's a limit to what you should do in a challenge and what you shouldn't", the teen said. But when he fell asleep, his friend made a decision to surprise him.

The Hot Water Challenge, which has been around for years, claimed a new victim in a 15-year-old teenager from Indiana.

A 15-year-old teen suffered second-degree burns to his face and body after his friends allegedly poured boiling hot water on him as he slept in a bid to complete the "Hot Water Challenge".

Clark described to WKRG how he received the serious injuries shortly after he and a friend looked up the "Hot Water Challenge" on YouTube. Hopefully the lesson Clark learned can promulgate throughout the internet faster than the challenge itself, showing young people that boiling water, whether tossed on someone or ingested, is nothing to laugh about.

This hashtag means we should think about what is happening to the coral reefs like the rising water temperature So!We suggest a hot Water bucket challenge. He was confined in the hospital for a week as he received treatment. It also involves people posting to social media videos of themselves performing the challenge on an unsuspecting person.

It was one of his mother Andrea Clark's worst nightmares.

Some online challenges produce positive changes and are worth promoting so that they can go viral and help people.

"I looked down at my chest", he said. In the case of the hot water challenge, Dr. Ed Bartkus says it's possible to end up with permanent disfigurement due to burns or, if someone swallows the hot water, burns to the airway that could cause them to close, resulting in death.

Kyland and his mother also want to make it known how risky the challenge is. The Hot Water Challenge claimed one life past year when a child drank boiling water, and in a YouTube video by MedXclusive Learning, physicians claim they are seeing more injured patients in the ER because of unsafe social media challenges.

Kyland's doctors say he should heal from his injuries. "Don't take it overboard", Kyland said.

Clark was hospitalized for a week.
