IOWA CITY, Iowa -- (WHO) -- An Iowa teen landed in the intensive care unit after attempting a viral dance trend, and says all parents and teens need to hear her story.
Anna Worden had to be airlifted to Iowa City for emergency treatment, according to WQAD.
She was driving around town with friends on July 23, 2018.
"We were over by the roundabout, and I thought it would be a fun idea to do the Kiki Challenge," explains Anna.
Thousands of fans worldwide have been posting videos of themselves jumping out of moving cars dancing to a Drake song, also known as the "In My Feelings" Challenge. The dance challenge started in late June when a social media star posted a choreographed video and told people to learn the moves.
"I tried, and the last thing I remember was opening the door. So apparently I got out and tripped and fell and hit my head," says Anna. Still unconscious, Anna was rushed to the hospital where she was airlifted to Iowa City.
Anna had a fracture in her skull, blood clots in her ear and bleeding in her brain.
"When we got here and I finally gained consciousness in the ICU, that's when it hit me like wow, I'm actually in the University of Iowa hospitals because I tried to do some little challenge everyone's doing now, and I'm the one that got majorly hurt," says Anna. "Be more careful about the challenges and fads that are going around. It may seem fun, and it may seem easy, but at the same too, they could be so dangerous."
