"Knock Out" a new street game going viral. Except it's for real!

Imagine walking down the street. You could be a girl or a boy, a man or a woman, but usually walking alone. You come across five young teenagers and they are walking your way. Its okay! You feel safe. It's in the middle of the day. There are people around. When suddenly WHAM! The next thing you know you're in an ambulance being rushed to the hospital with a concussion and a broken jaw.

You've just been an unsuspecting victim of the new viral craze, called 

"Knock Out"

The idea is to randomly select a victim, preferably in a public place and sucker punch that person.  The move, nicknamed "The One Hitter Quitter" is where the person has to be knocked out with that single punch or it doesn't count.

It hasn't crossed the border yet, but is increasing in frequency in American cities.

Scary, it won't be long before we see it being played out here in a Canadian city. 

People are dying just from the fun of playing this game.

I guess "having fun" doesn't mean the same anymore.
