Girl, 16, nearly dies from NekNominate craze

Echo: Girl, 16, nearly dies from NekNominate craze Girl, 16, nearly dies from NekNominate craze

A TEENAGE girl almost died after downing neat vodka while taking part in a terrifying internet craze sweeping social network sites.

Megan Lister, 16, was rushed to hospital after downing the spirit during a NekNominate dare – a Facebook craze believed to be behind the recent deaths of five people, including Isaac Richardson, 20, from Colchester.

Her mother, Dawn Marie Lister, 43, from Leigh, has spoken out to warn other parents about the terrible dangers the craze is posing for youngsters.

She explained she was out for Sunday lunch with her partner, Mark Goodson, 52,when they got a frantic call to go home.

She said: “Megan’s friend called asking us to go home because she had gone a bit loopy.

We rushed back to find she had drunk the best part of a big bottle of vodka.

“She was running out in the street screaming “I want to die”.

She threw a plate at someone, cut herself with a knife and trashed the bathroom.

“She completely flipped out.”

The frantic couple, who have six children between them, called Southend Hospital and were told to take her straight in.

Ablood test six hours after she was admitted found she was still three times over the legal drinkdrive limit.

Doctors, who told Megan she was lucky to be alive, kept her in until Monday evening.

Now back home and still recovering, the Seevic health and social care student has agreed for her story to be told in order to warn other young people.

Miss Lister, a yoga teacher, said: “Her friend had stayed overnight and the girl’s boyfriend had “nominated” her to drink the vodka, but she refused and instead nominated Megan – and she stupidly did it.

It was such a stupid thing to do.

“I thought I knew my kids. I know they have a social life and they drink a little bit, but no matter how much stuff you think they are doing, no matter how good your relationship is with your kids, I want people to know they are doing stuff you don’t know about!

“I want people to know how dangerous this is and if it helps to save someone’s life then it needs to be told.”

Hospital advises excess alcohol is dangerous

 

THE NekNomination craze is judged to be particularly dangerous, because of the twin elements of lowered inhibitions coupled with peer pressure.

Young people can be particularly susceptible to the effects of alcohol, but just two drinks can render an adult legally intoxicated.

The extent to which a person becomes inebriated will depend on age, gender, alcohol tolerance and the amount of food in the stomach The body metabolises an average drink in one hour, so downing vast amounts of neat spirits quickly will lead to alcohol poisoning.

Southend Hospital says it is yet to see high numbers of people admitted because of the craze, but it warned of the effects of binge drinking.

Caroline Howard, A&E consultant said: “Southend Hospital’s A&E department has not seen an overall increase in numbers because of NekNominate, but there have been a few cases of both adults and children requiring admission due to alcohol poisoning.

“The effects of severe alcohol intoxication are often under estimated.

It can result in severe, life -threatening effects and deaths do occur every year. Alcohol is a poison and excess amounts may cause serious medical harm.”

Facebook craze has already claimed lives

NEKNOMINATION is an online craze, thought to have originated in Perth, Australia, in which drinkers post videos of themselves downing alcohol in a series of outrageous stunts.

They then nominate their friends on social media to repeat the dare. The craze has its own dedicated Facebook site.

Isaac Richardson, 20, from Colchester, is understood to have drunk a mix of more than two pints of wine, vodka, whisky and lager while he was being filmed by friends.

He collapsed shortly after drinking the almost three-pint pitcher.

Those who encourage others to drink lethal quantities have been warned they could face manslaughter charges.

The warning followed the death of Stephen Brookes, 29, who downed a pint of vodka as a result of a NekNomination challenge. His death is being investigated by South Wales Police.

A 20-year-old Nottingham man, Bradley Eames, died after downing two pints of gin.

Other recent deaths linked to the craze include Irish teenager Jonny Byrne, from Carlow, who jumped into a river midway through a challenge.

His death in February came a day after 22-year-old Ross Cummins died in Dublin City Centre.

Thanks for the warning, but I already knew that drinking 1L of vodka in a short time, or downing a pint of bleach was, you know, sort of dangerous. I think we need to understand the difference between a systemic problem with the game, and a few isolated incidents of stupidity.

The sooner Farcebook and Tw@tter are closed down for good, the better it will be.

Both are populated by loonytunes, misfits and outright maniacs. I closed my Farcebook account over a year ago. One of the best things I've ever done in my life.

However, I still suffer from the aftermath.. the three times my page was hacked, pictures stolen and licentious rubbish plastered all over the internet about me.

Friends have since taken their accounts offline for similar reasons.

Social networking is now a playground for idiots.

My sentiments exactly.

The truth is that F@rcebook is earning millions from advertisers and goes from strength to strength but it is not policed at all.

They do not employ people to police it and they ignore emails if you alert them to harassment, bullying or theft of intellectual property.

They just ignore you

Therefore they have no policy whatsoever in place to police their site.

People post sick details about dead babies, terrorism, rape and paedophilia and it can be weeks or never at all that Facebook will close down that page.

When I was on it we had whole campaigns against hate pages but Farcebook totally ignored our please to have certain pages removed.

As I said, Farcebook and Tw@tter are evil and destructive.

Pressure needs to be put on them by governments to start policing their sites or be ordered to remove themselves off the internet.

Too many people's lives have been destroyed, relationships wrecked, people's livelihoods ruined and worst of all, there have been too many suicides associated with social networking.

I'd ban the lot in an instant if they cannot deal with the lunatics that populate them.

A lot of these people need locking up and the key throwing away. Social networking is an online lunatic asylum full of the most rabid, disgusting, lunatic, revolting human beings in existence.

Sadly we have always had peer pressure and stupid games like this, but now with social media it's laid up for all to see, and instead of this taking a few weeks or months to spread, it's taking hours/days.

Why do people do this? I can only guess it's along the same reasons people stand on the seafront in a force 9 storm, our lives have had so much danger removed that it has almost become sterile, and so we are going out of our way to put some back in, to find that adrenaline surge. And it is costly in lives that can be ruined.
While I am in favour of de-steralising our lives, there has to be some level of sense and this drinking trend has got to stop

Your theory on 'social media' deaths is a loads of sh1t. These deaths probably would of happened anyway even if there weren't no such thing as social media. When people died through things like this maybe 20 years ago when such sites didn't exist, we're these social media related too? You talk complete crap and watch too much news.

When people died through things like this maybe 20 years ago when such sites didn't exist, we're these social media related too? You talk complete crap and watch too much news. Get out of your arm chair, get out into the real world, and get a life.
THAT NOT TRUE KIM IS RIGHT.
REMEMBER WALES ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO ?
ALL ASSISTING EACH OTHER IN SUICIDE WITH THE POWER OF SUGGESTION.
IT IS THE INTERNET THAT FUELS THIS TREND
THAT'S THE WHOLE STORY DON'T YOU GET IT ?
A CRAZE ON FACEBOOK !!!!!!!!!!
i can think of a few people who i would "suggest" suicide to......not sure many would be stupid enough to actually do it.

Another facebook connection. Another young life snuffed out.

Go on, down arrow this and show how big you are. Let's see how many of you REALLY think social networking is a good idea, never mind the deaths and the ruined lives.

I think the problem is not so much social networking but rather antisocial networking.

P.S. Reg Reg, if you really are breaking down would you please do it a bit more quietly ? Thanks.

It isn't Facebook that is the problem, it is the stupidity of some of the people that frequent it that is in question.

She threw a plate at someone,

“She completely flipped out.”

Show us some "facts" then.

How about the "facts" on the number of lives wrecked by people who started out on cannabis and who have done ecstasy and speed.

How about starting with Leah Betts....
Look up Leah on Wiki... she died because she drank too much water, not directly because of taking ecstasy.
