Anna Worden tripped while jumping out of the moving vehicle, hit her head to the ground and was unconscious. "#InMyFeelings Keep #Delhi roads safe for all", the tweet read. The Delhi Police on Tuesday tweeted advisory over urging netizens to not take up the social media challenge '#InMyFeelings challenge', in order to avoid accidents on road. In Boynton Beach, Florida a young man was hit by vehicle while attempt the In My Feelings challenge, according to WGHP.
In India, police posted this warning to Facebook, encouraging participants to halt the sensation due to its unsafe nature.
