I have been asked to share this story regarding a new social media trend known as the Blue Whale Game which involves self-harming, risky behaviour and suicide.
Police warn British parents over ‘suicide game behind hundreds of Russian teen deaths’
British PCs have urged parents to be aware of the Blue Whale challenge. The online ‘game’ is being blamed for a spate of teenage suicides in Russia. Participants allegedly complete self-harm ‘tasks’ before killing themselves. Two schoolgirls fell to their deaths after taking part in the Blue Whale suicide game.
