A 12-year-old girl in Detroit Michigan suffered burns on more than 49 percent of her body on Friday when she became"engulfed in flames as she participated in the"fire challenge

The challenge requires those who attempt to cover themselves in flammable liquid and record themselves being set on fire.

Brandi is trying to be strong, but can't bear seeing her daughter bandaged from head-to-toe and in intensive care with burns over 49 percent of her body.

A mother in Detroit is speaking out about unsafe online challenges that are popular with many young people.

Brandi Owens said her daughter will live to be 13 years old, but it will be an excruciatingly painful road to get there.

A 12-year-old girl in MI took part in a challenge and a dare that could have cost her life. Soon after, Owens witnessed her child run down the hallway in flames.

Owens said she left her kitchen Friday morning (Aug. 17) after making pancakes for Timiyah and her two friends.

Timiyah Landers was hanging out with two friends at her house on Friday when she made a decision to mimic the challenge after learning about it on YouTube, WJKB-TV reports.

The film earned $200 million domestically and $680.6 million internationally, for a worldwide total of $880.7 million. Eon Productions, MGM and Univesal Pictures are partnering together to produce the film.

"These kids are trying these YouTube challenges", Owens told Fox2.

Owens told the Free Press that "I don't want to see another parent in my situation at all".

Owens said in a statement for an online fundraiser for Timiyah that the incident "has shocked and shaken our entire family to the core". "It's not good and its devastating". Her mom says kids find these dangerously "outrageous" challenges on social media and Youtube. "Even though it was her decision to do it", Owens told the paper that she wants YouTube to pull the videos down. A YouTube spokesperson said in an email that "YouTube's Community Guidelines prohibit content that's meant to encourage unsafe activities that have an inherent risk of physical harm or death".

A search on YouTube on Tuesday morning revealed at least one dozen "fire challenge" videos remained on the site.

"She was just laying there in pain, the tears in her eyes, it kills me - watching her suffer, due to what her and her friends done".

An online fundraiser for Landers was started on Monday and has raised $2,330 so far. "I don't have the money for the future" recovery efforts, she said.
