Another person has been reportedly killed while attempting the ice bucket challenge. Sergio Cardozo reportedly died on camera while doing the ice bucket challenge with two fellow friends. In the video, Sergio is seen sitting on a chair with a helmet on as two friends are holding a bucket from a balcony. The two friends are holding a plastic trash bin full of ice water and drop the whole trash bin on his head.

But as new entries are posted, a rumor suggesting ice bucket challenges can be fatal has circulated as well, with a few versions of the tale often accompanying posts about the social media trend. Users have asked about the rumor, and concerns about the safety of the ice bucket challenge have proliferated.

Several variations have been suggested as part of the ice bucket death rumor, but most frequently the ill-fated charitable party is said to have fallen victim to a slippery ice bucket or died of shock after being exposed to freezing water. One such claim suggesting the former originates from a "satirical" website, alleging that a teenager was killed by a falling ice bucket in an incident captured on video:
