11-Year-Old Girl Set On Fire When Birthday Silly String Prank Goes Wrong [Video]
While the Silly String itself is said to be "non-flammable," can we just all agree not to spray people with it around open flames?
As this family is singing to the little girl around her cake, which has sparklers on it, they get to the end of the song, and begin spraying her with Silly String. Whether it's the Silly String itself that catches on fire, or the aerosol from the can that makes the flame which catches her hair on fire.
There's not much about the video that's available regarding the well-being of the child, although, it looks like family members were able to quickly extinguish the fire.
The "about" section of the Silly String website states:
SILLY STRING Brand Spray Streamer, the original fun in a can, is non-toxic, non-flammable, 100% safe for children and the environment and made in the USA. It's perfect for parties, pranks, play and all-around fun. Nothing makes people of all ages giggle, laugh, run and squeal like a can or two of SILLY STRING Brand Spray Streamer.
Again, while it says that Silly String is non-flammable, and 100% safe for children, they may want to add a part in there about not spraying it into fire. The string may not be flammable, but the chemicals that shoot it out of the can sure are!
