    Teen's Body Bursts Into Flames After Dangerous Stunt

    A young man, known on his Facebook page as Dread'Head Kelley recently played a very dangerous truth or dare stunt with a unknown flammable liquid that could have cost him his life for friends on Facebook.

    After pouring the liquid all over his chest, while standing in a bathtub, he asked for a cigarette lighter from onlookers nearby and lit it onto his chest. Flames immediately burst out all over his body, including his hair and clothing as he panicked and ran helplessly.

    Family and friends nearby immediately began yelling for him to lay into the water already filled in the bathtub with the shower running. But instead, he began to scream and fell to the floor while everyone screamed for him to take his shorts off that were on fire too. After this scene the video was stopped.

    In a later video, Kelly talks and demonstrates the aftermath of his dangerous stunt by showing viewers how difficult it is to even eat. He can be seen wearing burn bandages around his waist and stomach area. He also suffered burns on his lips and face. He plead with viewers and friends not to ever try this kind of dare and never do dangerous stunts they see others perform.

    The very graphic video was posted on his Facebook on July 29th of this year. And since its posting, more than 216,518 shares have been posted.
