Another horrific case of the case was revealed as an Indian teenager from Jodhpur attempted suicide for the second time, both times as a task of the game.
The first time girl told her parents that she is going out with her friends. She carved the whale with a blade on her arm and threw her mobile phone before jumping in the Kailana Lake.
Later she also said that ‘’If I don’t do this, my mother will die’’, which shows the psychological trauma of this game.
On Wednesday, 17 years old was taken to the hospital after she consumed an excessive amount of sleeping pills. She was rushed to ICU for urgent medical aid.
Dr. KR Daukiya later told that the girl was quite stressed first but after getting the initial treatment she opened up regarding how she got involved in playing this game.
The hospital has decided to provide her counseling with depression to help her regain self-esteem.
The cases are not only horrifying but also a concern for everyone. Parents need to closely monitor their children’s online activities and should seek proper help in case if an unusual shift is observed in their behavior.
