(Scroll down for video) Several teenagers were rescued from a home, where they attempted to commit suicide for fun.

The teenagers met online and decided to commit suicide together because they thought it would be an interesting thing to do.

The incident took place in Jinan, Shandong, China.

The group of two men and two women began chatting online earlier this month.

One of the teens who was identified as Xiao, said that he was a college student in Hebei, and he traveled to Jinan to meet his new friends four days before his suicide attempt.

Three of the teens drank large amounts of alcohol before sealing all the windows and doors. They set coal on fire in the rented apartment.

One of the women became scared and left the apartment when her friends began to faint. She ran to call an ambulance.

The passed out teenagers were found by emergency services. “As we entered the house, the three teenagers were laying on the ground,” said a paramedic.

When asked why they tried to kill themselves, Xiao said it was “just for fun.”

He added that they did “not believe there was a high chance of succeeding.”
