OH NO: Man attempts boiling water trick during polar vortex, it doesn't end well


January 31, 2019


Thanks to the Polar Vortex, we've had an endless barrage of the usual weather app and dashboard temperarure pics...and a failry new entrant - videos of people throwing boiling water into the air in the sub-zero temps.

While attempting the viral trick, YouTuber Chris Kieger accidentally burned himself because he decided to do it while he was wearing almost nothing. 

Most of the water turns to steam, but some of the boiling water hit him right in the leg.

"The air was cold, my calf was scalding," Kieger wrote on YouTube.
