The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge seems to have claimed life of a teenage boy. Cameron Lancaster, 18, who took up the ice bucket challenge had jumped into “disused” quarry and didn’t come back, say eye-witnesses. The Prestonhill Quarry in Inveighing, Scotland was a regular spot for swimming as several teenagers usually jump in although it’s not in use. But this turned out to be tragedy for Lancaster.

Emergency services soon turned up at the accident spot and recovered Lancaster’s body after four-hour search in the deep water. The family of Lancaster was said to be devastated with the sudden loss. This is perhaps, the first human death linked to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
