Hate to admit this but I can see why people had participated in this challenge. They may have thought it’s a lie (the combination of salt and ice can’t hurt you) or they are trying to prove how tough they are. Ultimately – PLEASE DO NOT DO IT.

What is the Salt and Ice Challenge? ‘Challengers’ tried to cause a burning sensation on their body by pouring salt on their bodies (possibly on their arm) before placing a piece of ice on the salt. The challengers will try to withstand the pain as long as they could.
