#DeadPose challenge is a popular South African trend which people pose as if they’re dead for the camera but this challenge went awry in a sad story.
This is the case of a South African girl who suffered a seizure while performing the challenge for her friends who cheered and took pictures of her.
Live Monitor reports that the 19-year-old medical student, identified as Tshidi Ngwenya had earlier posted a series of pictures performing the challenge, before deciding to make it a reality to perform the pose
Unfortunately, the challenge went the wrong way as she suffered a seizure, collapsed and died while her cheering friends had no idea of her distressed situation.
Some minutes later, one of the friends realized that she was not moving, checked her and noticed she had choked after swallowing her tongue.
After a desperate attempt to revive her as they waited on paramedics, she died before the ambulance arrived.
One of the paramedics said:
‘Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of the ambulance crew, nothing could be done to save her. If her friends had noticed early, she would be alive now”
