This story is from Russia, but since the internet is everywhere, it could easily come to the US….all the more reason to make sure you monitor your children’s online activity.
“Russian police are investigating a sinister ‘game’ spreading on the web instructing children about ‘how to become a fire fairy’ – by secretly turn on the gas rings on kitchen cookers.
The sickening social media scam is created to look like a harmless prank modelled on popular animated series ‘Winx Club: School of Witches’.
But children – and it is aimed at young girls – are told that if they turn on the gas burners on their stove and repeat ‘magical words’, they will become ‘fire fairies’.
One little girl, five-year-old Sofia Ezhova, was severely burned after switching on a gas oven while playing the game.”
