Buried Alive Stunt: TikTok Bans Nigerian, Young C


Buried Alive Stunt: TikTok Bans Nigerian, Young C


Short video platform, TikTok, has permanently banned the account of Young C, a Nigerian man who embarked on a 24-hour challenge of being buried alive.

Checks by our reporter on the platform showed that his profile was no longer available.

Young C had caused a stir online on Wednesday when he embarked on a challenge to be buried alive in a coffin for 24 hours.

Young C’s stunt bears resemblance to a similar challenge undertaken by American YouTuber MrBeast (Jimmy Donaldson), who spent 50 hours buried alive two years ago to raise awareness about deforestation.

Recently, Mr Beast attempted to surpass his own record by spending seven consecutive days buried in a coffin, overcoming physical and mental challenges before being exhumed.
