Dangerous Viral Trends

• Why do certain people participate in these risky challenges? Hear from three Internet daredevils.
Every Parent’s Nightmare
The day after Thanksgiving 2011, Trina received a call from her husband who said that her 13-year-old son, Trey, was missing. She says she knew something was wrong, because it was very unlike Trey to disappear and not answer his phone. Friends and family gathered to search the neighborhood, and Trina’s husband called 911. That’s when Trey’s body was discovered. Following the untimely, and seemingly inexplicable, death of her son, Trina discovered that Trey had learned how to huff Freon out of air conditioning units on the Internet and had been experimenting with the dangerous trend. Sadly, this risky behavior ultimately caused his death.
Teens and Drug Use
A recent study found that by late adolescence, more than 70% of kids have consumed alcohol, and more than 40% have experimented with drugs. Child safety deputy Clay Cranford, from the Orange County Sheriff's Department, details new ways kids are hiding drugs. Plus, The Doctors share three drug terms you need to know.
The Doctors talk to two young men who participate in car jumping — attempting to jump over a moving vehicle. See shocking footage of the dangerous acts, and learn why they put their lives at risk to perform these stunts.
“Bones heal. Brain injuries don’t, paralysis doesn’t, disfigurement doesn’t, and you don’t heal from death,” Dr. Travis warns.
