The challenge is called “Rompcráneos” in Spanish and it’s been circulating on TikTok and other places. The challenge involves three people standing side-by-side. The person in the middle jumps up high and the people on either side kick out the jumper’s legs before they can land. The jumper can end up hitting their head hard and have serious injuries as a result.
Bullying can lead to the challenge.
