Social Media game “Blue Whale”, reason of more than 130 suicides across the world

What kind of game is it which urges the kids to suicide, after the news from some unofficial sources of a suicide in Kuwait due to game called “Blue Whale” but so far this news has not yet confirmed by any official media except a line in arabtimes which has just talked about suicide “A 14-year old Bedoun youth committed suicide inside his family home in Taima area.” and the reason is being investigated.

A potentially dangerous social media game, which has been linked to 130 teen deaths in Russia, is making its way to the UK, leading to schools issuing warnings to parents.The game is called the ‘Blue Whale Game’ and is being played across various social media platforms by youngsters. It involves players being given a master that will control them and make them do tasks every day for 50 days. It seems like harmless fun but following investigations into the game in Russia, the game was found to be behind a large number of teen suicides.

According to reports, those who took their lives had completed smaller challenges in the ‘game’ over the 50 days and by the end of it, were encouraged to try to ‘win the game’ by killing themselves.

Veronika Volkova is one of the teens that took their own life.

In Russia, two schoolgirls, aged 15 and 16, fell to their deaths from a 14-storey block of flats, another, aged 15, fell from a fifth floor flat, while a 14-year-old girl died after being hit by a train earlier this year.

A second girl had made plans to kill herself with the dead teenager, but changed her mind at the last moment.

Teenagers are urged to use a knife or razor to make the shape of a whale on their wrist or leg, say Russian reports. They are also urged to watch horror movies all day, and to wake themselves at 4.20am, steps leading up to demands to take their own lives on the 50th day of being in the game.
