Uh-oh…there’s another challenge out there. No, it’s not the like the ‘Hot Sauce Challenge’ or even the ‘Ice Bucket Challenge.’ This one is a lot more dangerous. Authorities in Massachusetts have sent out letters to fire departments and educators warning of the “Outlet Challenge” that involves using part of a phone charger, a wall outlet, and a penny.
What has happened is damage to electrical systems and possible fires. The “outlet challenge” video is on TikTok (a video-sharing social media platform) and there’s now concern after three incidents at two schools.
