Blue Whale - Suicide Game - big concern for all the parents

Blue Whale suicide challenge


It sets them 50 challenges and the last one is to commit suicide

POLICE in the UK are warning parents about a sick ‘suicide challenge’ known as Blue Whale after the terrifying online craze was linked to the deaths of hundreds of teenagers in Russia.

Also worried school parents in Dubai have been sharing advisories with each other via social media regarding an online craze, which has reportedly been linked to hundreds of teen deaths already.

The chilling challenge, called Blue Whale, is a 'suicide game' allegedly run by an online social media group in which gamers are being urged to complete a set of daring challenges over a 50-day period, before then being told to kill themselves.

The advisory read: "Any parents out there or anyone that knows of any kids playing an online game called 'Blue Whale', please get your kids off this game. It sets them 50 challenges and the last one is to commit suicide."



What is the Blue Whale online suicide game?

The Blue Whale ‘suicide game’ is believed to be an online social media group which is encouraging people to kill themselves.

It’s thought a ‘group administrator’ assigns ‘daily tasks’ to members, which they have to complete for 50 days.

They include self-harming, watching horror movies and waking up at unusual hours, but these gradually get more extreme.

But on the 50th day, the controlling manipulators behind the game reportedly instruct the youngsters to commit suicide.

How many teenage deaths have been linked to Blue Whale in Russia?

Police are said to be probing at least 130 suicides across Russia which they fear are linked to the online craze.

But as of yet the Blue Whale game has not been proven to be directly responsible for any deaths.

Investigative newspaper Novaya Gazeta reported: “We have counted 130 suicides of children that took place between November 2015 to April 2016.

“Almost all these children were members of the same internet groups and lived in good, happy families.”

Two schoolgirls Yulia Konstantinova, 15, and Veronika Volkova, 16, fell to their deaths from the roof of a 14-storey apartment block.

Another unnamed 15-year-old girl was also critically injured after falling onto snowy ground from a fifth floor flat in the city of Krasnoyarsk, also Siberia.

Two days earlier, a 14-year-old girl from Chita was reported to have thrown herself under a commuter train.

A 13-year-old boy was also saved from killing himself after he was spotted perching on the edge of a roof in Lviv, Ukraine.

In all cases, state investigators are probing whether the controversial social media ‘suicide game’ had influenced the girls to take their own lives.

Yulia left a note saying “End” on her social media page after she posted a picture of a big blue whale.
