What Is The Kiki Challenge? Details About Iowa Teen Girl Fractured Skull Doing KiKi Dance Challenge

A teen ended up in critical condition when her attempt at the latest dance trend went very wrong.

Anna Worden, 18, had to be airlifted to an Iowa City hospital in critical condition on July 23 after she hopped out of her car to record the "Kiki / Keke Challenge," WQAD reports.

The viral fad involves people jumping out of moving vehicles to dance to Drake's song, "In My Feelings." Internet comedian Shiggy began the challenge when he posted a video of himself dancing to the track and keeping up with the car as it moves on Instagram in June. People all over loved it and have since been imitating Shiggy's moves, but not without fails.

Worden, who has been dancing since she was 3, was eager to join the thousands of people posting their videos of the "Kiki Challenge" on social media. She was driving around with friends and decided to try the choreographed moves herself but wound up fracturing her skull when she got out of the car to dance.

"We were over by the round-about, and I thought it would be a fun idea to do the Kiki Challenge," she said.

She was not expecting for the day to go horribly wrong.

"I tried, and the last thing I remember was opening the door," she said. "So apparently I got out and tripped and fell and hit my head."

Anna fell unconscious and was rushed to a local hospital before being airlifted to an ICU in Iowa City for emergency treatment.

I had five minutes to give her a kiss and not know what was going to happen. I will always remember that,” said the girl's father, Mike Worden.

Anna said she couldn't believe she was hospitalized as a result of an "easy" dance.

"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," she said.

According to WQAD, Anna suffered a fractured skull, blood clots in her ear, bleeding in her brain, and is now re-learning how to walk.

"For us to get to this point you see today has been a long road. Its hard on all of us," Worden's dad said as he helped her walk around the hospital room. 

Anna is far from the only person to be injured by the "Kiki Challenge." It has caused many accidents and authorities worldwide are speaking out against the dance craze and urge people to stop. 

“Not just a risk for you but your act can put the life of others at risk too. Desist from public nuisance or face the music! #DanceYourWayToSafety #InMySafetyFeelingsChallenge,” Mumbai Police posted on Twitter along with a video of someone attempting the challenge.

In Florida, people following the trend could be fined $1,000 and even hit with criminal charges, The Guardian reports.

Anna agrees with police and warned people to be careful of what viral sensation they follow.

"Be more careful about the challenges and fads that are going around," she said. "It may seem fun, and it may seem easy, but at the same too, they could be so dangerous."
