Pranks That Have Gone Out Of Control

Pranks That Have Gone Out Of Control


Airdate: 12/07/2012

An elevator prank has been seen around the world in recent days. The lights go out in the elevator and a ghostly little girl slipped in through a side door and scares the passengers.

In another elevator prank, a dead body falls out of a coffin. The elevator passengers were hysterical.

Kelly Rippa pointed out the obvious risk of this cruel stunt.

Rippa said, “It's really not funny. Somebody is going to have a bad ticker, they're going to play that prank the wrong person.”

When pranksters push the envelope, the risk of serious injury or even death is a real possibility. 

A young woman died when a bizarre radio contest went wrong. Jennifer Strange drank two gallons of water in three hours for a radio stunt in 2007. She was trying to win a video game system for her children.

The shock jocks behind the stunt were warned of the danger, but laughed it off.

Concerned callers told the DJ’s, “Those people that are drinking all that water can get sick and possibly die from water intoxication.”

A DJ responded, “They've signed releases, so we are not responsible. It's okay.”

Strange said, “I want to get out of this room!"

A DJ said, “No ma'am remain calm."

A woman on the receiving end of a creepy prank call suffered a stroke because she was so frightened as to what she was hearing on the other end.

The prank caller said, "You decide. It's your game. Do you want to live or die?"

Beverly Dixon told INSIDE EDITION, "It was shocking."

The left side of Dixon's face is distorted and her speech is slurred.

Dixon said, "This wouldn't have happened if i hadn't gotten the call."

Now, with the apparent suicide of pregnant Kate’s nurse, we are all coming to appreciate just how cruel and dangerous these practical jokes can be.
