When the 'Shiggy Challenge' Goes Wrong: Man Hit by Car While Taking Part in Viral Dance Craze

Playing ‘Shiggy Challenge’ Goes Horribly Wrong for These Dancers

Are people taking the "Shiggy Challenge" too far? 

The dance, also known as the "In My Feelings Challenge," has led some participants to serious injuries.  

Jaylen Norwood risked his life doing the viral dance when the Florida native got hit by a car. 

Norwood luckily walked away with only a scraped arm. 

"I was going to jump on the hood and I was going to keep dancing, I was going to try and mix it up a bit. It didn’t work at all," he told Inside Edition. 

His friend, who was behind the wheel, told Inside Edition that "when he fell forward that close to the bumper, I hit the brake and I slammed as hard as I could at that point and I didn’t know if he was going to get back up." 

Norwood’s video caused such a stir that it got him an invitation to appear on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

In Iowa, Anna Worden, 18, ended up in a neck brace after attempting the challenge.  

“Apparently, I got out and tripped and fell and hit my head,” Worden told Inside Edition. 

The teen, from Iowa City, suffered a fractured skull and bleeding in her brain. Today, she's re-learning how to walk with her father by her side.  

The National Transportation Safety board has issued a warning against those performing the "Shiggy Challenge" outside a car, saying, "Hopping out of a moving vehicle or jumping into lanes of traffic to show your dance moves is foolish and dangerous."

They added: "Our nation's highways and roadways are no place for the #InMyFeelings challenge.”
