The Blue Whale Suicide game

A phenomenon that has taken over the World called the ‘Blue Whale’ suicide game. From Wikipedia, “The term Blue Whale game (Russian: Синий кит, Siniy kit) refers to a trend on Russian-speaking social media, linked to a possible increase in child and teenage suicides.

The term ‘Blue Whale game’ name derived from the image of a Blue Whale being beached on a shore, as in a suicide ordeal. The game reminds me of a quiet similar to a phenomenon called Neknomination, from a few years back, where people were challenged to become involved drinking games to excess. Fatalities resulted from this social media game also.

Apparently, in Russia where the game began, they have accounted for  for 130 suicides from a 6 month period stretching from 2015 to 2016
