The "Ice Bucket Challenge" is the newest viral stunt to hit the Internet, but despite its altruistic goals, it can potentially do more harm than good.
Viral challenges like this one all have a similar formula: Someone challenges you via social media to perform a stunt, you record video of yourself doing the challenge, and then you challenge three more people to follow suit. As Chicago's WBBM-TV reports, the "Ice Bucket Challenge" involves dumping ice water over your head and donating either $10 or $100 to research for ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. The ALS Association has garnered more than $9 million in "Ice Bucket Challenge" donations so far.
But can an "Ice Bucket Challenge" lead to a real injury?
