The popularity of social media has captured the attention of millions of people of all ages. TikTok, Instagram and Facebook entertain us with video content and trends that many viewers partake in. Trends rise and fall on these social media apps, some harmless while others extremely harmful. A recent trend proven to be quite dangerous is the boat jumping challenge, which is a trend where individuals jump off the sides of boats into water (sometimes shallow) moving at high speeds. Although “boat jumping” hasn’t been directly linked to any fatalities yet, officials warn of the dangers associated with this viral TikTok challenge.
