Good afternoon.Their was a stunt on youtube that left a badly burned 8 year old boy.The boy is from Concord,NH. They were at a sleep over at his friend house. they watched a video on youtube The video show a person putting hand sanitizer and setting of fire. He copied this and was badly burned as they rushed him to hospital. The boy did not realized that this contain alcohol I check youtube and see if I can find this.No luck unless they pull it off and hope that they do. _________________________________________________ Below is more information from Concord,Monitor Concord fire Chief Dan Andrus wants parents to talk to their children about copying a dangerous stunt that left an 8-year-old boy badly burned after he lit hand sanitizer on fire to copy a YouTube video. “I’m appalled and frightened by the prevalence of videos purporting to show tricks you can do with hand sanitizer and a lighter,” Andrus said. “It’s a recipe for disaster. I’m at a loss for words to say how dangerous this can be.” Earlier this week, a Concord boy was taken to a Massachusetts hospital for serious burns after trying to copy a stunt he saw on YouTube in which someone covers their hands in sanitizer and lights them on fire.

That is sad that the kid got burned. Children do copy what they see.

So sad. Thank goodness he's alive. Last year a little boy in the UK accidentally hung himself after seeing something on YouTube that he tried to copy.

It is incredible the crazy tricks that kids - and adults - try. You'd think they'd have more sense.

That is terrible. Parents need to monitor what their children are watching and doing.

Kids are so easily influenced by what they see online. Not sure how to stop kids, who do not know any better, from copying what they see.

How horrible... I hope that they did pull that video. There are a lot that should be pulled. As an adult, we should report them the minute we see them.

Yikes! I know kids are into stupid tricks . . . the thought of doing it is "cool" until someone gets really hurt. That's so sad that child got burned - but makes me wonder how he got a hold of a lighter!

Some of the things people post on You Tube is mind blowing that they're allowed to do it.
