Fact or Fiction: Disease code for milk crate challenge?

Posted at 7:44 PM, Aug 27, 2021

(KGTV) — A rumor going around claims so many people are getting hurt in the Milk Crate Challenge that the International Classification of Diseases has created a code for milk crate falls: W17.9.

But this is fiction. While the database does have many codes for falls, there is none involving milk crates.

But so many people have been getting hurt in the challenge that TikTok is banning it from its platform.
