A 12-year-old Argentinian girl died this week after parking in the deadly and viral “choking challenge,” a trend made popular on the social media video-sharing app TikTok.
Her death is one of several high-profile cases of children dying from attempting to choke themselves to the point of blacking out.
Milagros Soto died on January 13 in the city of Capitán Bermudez, Santa Fe Province, according to family members, who said they were “inconsolable” and added they “gave her so much love.” Soto’s body was discovered in her home after allegedly participating in the viral TikTok “choking” or “blackout challenge.” The little girl was found hanging from a makeshift noose.
