Pranks can invoke laughter and be lighthearted, even fun, if done right. But there is a fine line between funny pranks and putting other’s safety at the expense of the fun. The line is really easy to cross if not done mindfully.
Sometimes what one might think is an entertaining prank idea, might really harm someone and at that point, it’s not just a prank!
‘It’s just a prank’
A mother who goes by the user @azera5276 took it to Tiktok to express her grievances about her daughter, Iqa, who was admitted into a hospital resulting from a chair pulling prank at school by one of the other students.
The video also shows the girl laying in pain in the hospital bed with tearful eyes. Sadly, this prank has left a young girl with a fractured tailbone, disc bulge and bone bruise; rendering her bedridden.
Clearly saddened by this situation, the resilient mother expresses how much she loves her daughter and would always take care of her.
She asked the other viewers to pray for her daughter’s speedy recovery and strength to pull through these hard times.
Despite the stressful situation, the mother has advised everyone to not pull such dangerous pranks which can put people in harm’s way especially school children.
The comments were filled with netizen’s expressing their prayers and advising others not to do so. Some have even shared their own experiences as a lesson to be learnt for others.
“My kid was also a victim of this chair pulling prank, until it left him with a crooked spine. I don’t know what to say. Teachers please keep an eye on students.”
“We, teachers, have always reminded them (not to do it). Even the secondary school students never heed to us. I have been annoyed in my class when these chair pulling pranks happen.”
