Camden, N.J. — Two minors have been charged with third-degree Aggravated Assault and third-degree Endangering an Injured Victim for their participation in the Tik Tok “Skull Breaker Challenge” that injured another minor resulting in a seizure, closed head injury and concussion.
Acting Camden County Prosecutor Jill S. Mayer asks parents to please talk to their children about the potential consequences when you participate in a “challenge” or online trend. While the challenges may seem funny or get views on social media platforms, they can have serious and long lasting health consequences.
By having this talk with your kids, we hope to prevent future injuries and raise awareness about the real danger of some of these online trends.
All persons charged with crimes are presumed innocent until and unless adjudicated delinquent.
