(Scroll down for video) A 9-year-old girl is the youngest and latest victim of the NekNominate drinking game.
The child’s mother, Michelle Scully, 32, of County Durham, United Kingdom, called an ambulance after realizing something was not right with her daughter.
Scully saw her daughter, Rhiannon Scully, riding her electric scooter “all over the place” with “eyes rolling into the back of her head.” The girl was playing with two of her friends when the incident occurred.
Mrs. Scully learned that her daughter and her two friends, ages 8 and 11, took alcohol from her cabinet and they dared her daughter to drink it after watching some NekNominate videos on Facebook.
The girls went into the family’s home where they mixed vodka, whisky and orange juice and encouraged the girl to drink it.
The act was recorded on a mobile phone, but was deleted soon after. The families of the other two girls involved claimed they had no knowledge of the incident.
Rhiannon Scully was taken to the hospital to have her stomach pumped. Police confirmed that they questioned all the girls involved and decided that no charges will be filed. However, the mother reached out to Facebook, and asked them to remove the NekNominate videos as they are very dangerous.
Three people have already died while doing the NekNominate drinking game.
