YouTuber Jake Paul walks through traffic, drives blindfolded in ‘Bird Box’ challenge
Everyone: don't do the bird box challenge it's dangerous
“It takes a special kind of moron to not realize how that could result in serious injury,” tweets one follower. Pretty stupid to do in first place, but also arrogant to put other peoples lives in jeopardy for your own vanity. Others noted that “Paul never vocally warns fans” against trying the challenge at home.
Woman Dies in Alaska While Hiking to 'Into the Wild' Bus | Time
Another 'Into the Wild' Pilgrimage Has Ended in Death | Outside Online
Another 'Into the Wild' Pilgrimage Has Ended in Death,a 24-year-old Belarusian woman died while attempting to reach the abandoned bus made famous by Christopher McCandless and Into the Wild (2007).
Veranika Nikanava and her husband, 24-year-old Piotr Markielau, were crossing Alaska’s Teklanika River, just outside Denali National Park, when Nikanava lost her footing and was swept away. Markielau made it to shore and was able to retrieve his wife’s body downstream. He contacted the Alaska State Troopers just before midnight on July 25, and was retrieved by a police officer and volunteer firefighters on ATVs. According to Ken Marsh, a spokesman for the troopers, the couple had been married for less than a month.
The river is the primary obstacle in the popular but dangerous hike to the bus. It’s fast and cold, and can run waist-high or worse in high water. Sometimes there’s a rope strung across it, intended to help hikers. But that doesn’t guarantee safety: Nikanava reportedly lost her grip on the rope when she fell. In 2010, another young hiker, Claire Ackermann of Switzerland, drowned in the Teklanika under similar circumstances.
The bus sits 20 miles down the Stampede Trail, and roughly ten miles past the river crossing. A longtime shelter for hunters passing by in the fall, in the summer of 1992 it was home to Chris McCandless for several months. McCandless had been roaming and adventuring across North America for a couple of years before he wound up on the outskirts of Denali, where he hoped to survive off the land. He crossed the river and found his way to the bus in April, with winter still holding on. Later that summer, hungry and hoping to retreat, he found his way back blocked by the river at high water. He died in the bus in late August, and was found by moose hunters in September.
