OREGON-- No matter how cold it gets this weekend we do not recommend throwing hot water in the air.
Every winter we see the videos of people throwing water into super cold air, where it instantly freezes. It makes for a cool site to see, but it also makes for quite of few trips to the hospital.
Eight people who took part in the challenge have been treated at the burn center of Chicago's Loyola University Medical center in the past week. A spokesperson said they had injuries to their feet, arms, hands and face.
It's a similar story in Iowa and Minnesota.
