A teen from Karachi accidentally shot himself while making a video for famous social media app TikTok. The boy has been identified as Tanveer who used his father’s gun to film a video for tiktok but accidentally got shot and lost his life. The victim’s family has refused for the postmortem and demanded the body after being done with the legal formality.
Its not the first time something like this has happened, many tragic accidents have been happened before for the sake of making tiktoks. Recently, a man got killed after being hit by a train while making a video. But still nothing has been happened. It is worth noting that this teen Tanveer unintentionally lost his life. Although in many other cases people commit suicide and record it just for the sake of TikTok.
There have been hundreds of videos where TikTok ‘s unfortunate users take their own lives so that people can watch them doing it. It is time for our authorities as well as our social media influencers to take responsibility and motivate teenagers to stop them from making such kind of life-threatening contents. Accidents like that can be avoided simply by preventing and banning video challenges which pose any kind of danger to human life at all.
