Horrifying teen trend leaves cross burn on kid's back.

A Pennsylvania boy is recovering from severe cold burns and blisters in the shape of a giant cross on his back after participating in a chilling new teen fad called the "salt and ice challenge." The horrifying stunt, which makes the "cinnamon challenge" seem tame, dares kids to put salt on their body and cover it with ice. They then apply pressure and see how long they can withstand the pain. The unidentified Pittsburgh boy lasted several minutes, according to doctors, who treated him at a local burn center for injuries similar to frostbite. He had apparently learned about the challenge by watching YouTube and tried it in front of his brother and a friend during a sleepover. The school knew about the growing trend and had recently sent a letter home warning parents
