Tik-tok, one of the famously used social media platform for creating, sharing and discovering short music videos, especially now during the stay at home boredom, the app has gained popularity as it is mostly used by young people as an outlet to express themselves through singing, dancing, comedy and lip-syncing.
Many people have turned to Tik-Tok for entertainment and fun but for Sapphire Charlesworth, 27, what was meant to be fun turned out to be tragedy. The mother of two from Chester-le-Street in County Durham, is reportedly to have broken both her ankles while attempting the Oh Na Na Na Tik Tok dance challenge.
The Oh Na Na Na challenge is a challenge that sees contestants tapping their feet together for a social media video to the sound of the 2017 song which was popularized by celebrities including Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
According to Sapphire, she was trying to tap her feet against those of her friend Naadjele Lartey when she fell to the floor and heard a crack which has her left her ankle in a cast and her right foot placed in a moon boot, after doctors found that she had also torn ligaments there which may need an operation.
The challenge has seen thousands posting their videos attempting the nifty footwork during this lock-down period. However, Sapphire recommends that people should take caution when trying the challenge.
