MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) –The latest trending viral video stunt called #coldwaterchallenge has landed two people in hot water.
Some of the videos are part of an online campaign to help a Wisconsin toddler suffering from Leukemia. Now, the videos are being posted without a fundraising connection.
One video made Wednesday evening triggered a massive response from law enforcement and fire. The incident happened at 8:35 p.m. on the 610 West River Road Bridge in Brooklyn Park.
“Several people called 911 after seeing a man jump off the bridge into the Mississippi River,” said Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek.
