Demonstrating a reel life 'stunt' in front of her friends has literally cost a 12-year-old girl her life in Madhya Pradesh's Chhatarpur district, according to a report published on India Today on Tuesday. The girl, accompanied with other kids of the family and neighbourhood, was watching a horror show and accidentally hanged herself to death while trying to intimate a scene she had just seen on television.

The 12-year-old allegedly attempted the move by getting herself a stool and hanging with the help of a rope. The situation took a turn for the worst when a scene showed the TV character kicking a stool from beneath him. Unaware of the consequence, the girl enacted the scene.

Within seconds, the girl started struggling for her life but the kids watching her could not decide what to do. They started screaming, forcing the girl's parents to rush to the room. Discovering what has just happened, they took her to the district hospital where she was declared brought dead.

According to her medical reports, she had broken her neck in her act to enact the horror television show. The girl breathed her last while on her way to the hospital. Her body has been handed over to the family following the post-mortem and other legal procedures.

Meanwhile, police have prepared a panchnama of the incident and preliminary investigation is underway regarding the same.
