According to Astana TV channel, the author of the video introduces himself as the father of a teenager who died by suicide. Parents were warned and called to check their children's mobile phones.
A 13-year-old girl died by hanging herself from the stairs at home. The teenager's father says that the game on TikTok is to blame. It is said that a new game has appeared on the platform. It has its own conditions. First, the child cuts his hands, then he hangs himself.
"Check your children's phone. I don't know how to live and what to do. All because of the phone," said the father of the deceased girl.
It is said that two other students committed suicide in Taraz on the day the father of the deceased lost his daughter. However, they have already disabled the game on the mobile phone.
