    What is Milk Crate Challenge?

    In Milk Crate Challenge, one has to place milk crates on top of each other in ascending order like a staircase. Once a peak is reached, you need to arrange the other part in descending order. The challenger then has to climb up this wobbly staircase without losing his balance. After reaching the peak, one has to come down as well, without the crates falling from under the feet.

    People across the world are taking up the Milk Crate Challenge. While some have been acing it like a pro, many have hilariously taken the fall. As is human nature, some people are taking the challenge a notch higher by opting for this challenge in heels and skates. Surprisingly, some of them have aced it with absolute precision.

    While the Milk Crate challenge sounds easy on paper, it can be dangerous leaving the challenger badly injured if they fall. It could be hilarious for the people watching someone fall from the milk crate staircase. But at the same time, it could hurt the challenger. Given the rising popularity of the challenge, doctors have also taken to social media to warn people about it.
