Egyptian teenager attempts suicide, possibly as part of Blue Whale challenge
An Egyptian teenager who attempted suicide may have tried to end her life while playing the infamous Blue Whale game.
The 15-year-old girl attempted suicide by taking rat poison. According to her father, she drank the poison after arguing with her mother because she returned home late.
The doctor treating the girl found a tattoo with the letter “p” on her left leg. According to the medical report, the girl said she was playing the Blue Whale game and one of the challenges was to tattoo the letter “p” on her left leg and drink insecticide.
The girl later denied the doctor’s report at the prosecution but the doctor confirmed the girl’s account and noted that she retracted her statements because she was afraid of her parents’ reaction.
The prosecution tasked a security team to further investigate the incident and submit a detailed report.
