This little girl drank boiling water through a straw and the results were nothing less than devastating.
Taking a stupid dare is stupid.
Ki’ari Pope just wanted to show her cousin that she wasn’t going to back down from a dare.
She should have said no to this one.
The cost was way too high.
A little girl in Florida has died months after she was injured from drinking boiling water through a straw.
Ki’ari Pope, eight, of Boyton Beach, complained to her mother’s boyfriend that she couldn’t breath [sic] on Sunday night. Minutes later she was unresponsive.
Pope was rushed to the hospital but was pronounced dead at 12.15am.
Drinking the boiling water damaged her esophagus and required surgery that came with complications.
Pope’s mother, Marquisia Bonner, says the little girl was dared to drink the boiling water by her cousin in March.
Ki’ari received a tracheotomy that left her deaf and with chronic respiratory problems according to the Palm Beach Post.

The Florida Department of Children and Families had recorded her status as ‘medically compromised’.
State authorities are currently investigating her death as there have been at least nine other allegations of abuse or neglect of Ki’ari since her birth.
Sadly, little Ki’ari cannot learn from her mistake.
But you can.
Keep an eye on your daughters and raise them right.
ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles how-to book:
It has been said that daughters are God’s revenge on fathers for the kind of men they were when they were young. Some would say that both Doug Giles and I, given our infamous pasts, are charter members of that club. However, Doug and I know that his two wonderful daughters and my equally wonderful daughter and two granddaughters are truly God’s fantastic gift. With the wisdom of hindsight and experience Doug has written the ultimate manual for dads on raising righteous and rowdy daughters who will go out into the world well prepared- morally, physically, intellectually and with joyful hearts- to be indomitable and mighty lionesses in our cultural jungle. Through every raucous and no-holds-barred page, Doug, the incomparable Dad Drill Sergeant, puts mere men through the paces to join the ranks of the few, the proud, and the successful fathers of super daughters. The proof of Doug Giles’ gold-plated credentials are Hannah and Regis Giles- two of the most fantastic, great hearted and accomplished young ladies I have ever known. This is THE BOOK that I will be giving the father of my two precious five and three year old granddaughters. Tiger Mom meet Lion Dad! — Pat Caddell Fox News Contributor —
In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. —-S.E.

If I ever have daughters I m going to raise them up like Doug Giles has done: strong, proudly feminine, tough as nails, Proverbs 31 girls. ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’ is an excellent guide which shows how a father can raise up real women in a society that desperately needs them. —-Dana Loesch, Editor BigJournalism.com, Talk Radio Host, Television Commentator
