Although the Ice Bucket Challenge was created for a good cause, it recently got some negative votes on the social media as many people believe that pouring a bucket of drinking water over your head while people elsewhere suffer from severe drought is offensive. And one unfortunate British mother of two just joined the club of scornful anti-ice-bucket-challenge Internet users.
Amanda Davey, a mother of two and a beauty salon manager from the UK, asked her mom Irene to help her with the ice bucket challenge. Unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned. In the short video showing Amanda’s challenge, she looks optimistic, perky and a bit nervous as the ice cold water comes towards her. Her mom empties the entire bucket over Amanda and the latter runs away from the camera laughing and screaming – just like most people who have taken the challenge. However, as Amanda runs back inside her house, she slips on the kitchen floor and falls on the tiles.
She could have broken her neck during the painful fall, but fortunately doctors diagnosed her with just a severe case of whiplash.
