Russian police are currently investigating a what seems to be a suicidal game that’s circulating the internet and targeting little girls.
Sofia Ezhova, 5, was severely burned after switching on a gas oven while her parents are asleep because she was “following” instructions from an internet game.
“At midnight when everybody is asleep, get up from your bed and go around the room three times, then say the magical words: ‘Alfey kingdom, sweet little fairies, give me the power, I’m asking you.’ Then go to the kitchen silently, so no one notices you or the magic of the words will disappear. Switch on the gas stove, all four burners. But do not light it. You don’t want to get burns, do you? Then go to sleep. The magic gas will come to you, you will breathe it while sleeping and in the morning, when you wake up, say: ‘Thank you Alfeya, I’ve become a fairy.’ And you will became a real fairy of fire.”
The Russian Investigative Committee – equivalent of the FBI, are now searching for whoever is responsible in this sickening game that is causing concerns to a lot of parents. Russian police believes this is done not by an amateur but by professionals and is aiming to spark panic among parents.
One mother expresses her concern when her child allegedly tried to play the game
“I woke up in the night and felt the strong smell of gas.
“My daughter, seven, had just left the kitchen and went to her room.
“It turned out that she had read in the Internet that to become the fairy of fire you need to go to the kitchen when everyone is asleep and switch on the gas oven.
“If I had not gone to check, our family of eight would not wake up in the morning.
“I talked to her and she promised not to hide her plans from me and tell me everything.”
A company called Rainbow is responsible for the Winx Club characters which are seen on the game graphics but the company has no participation of the horrific social media scam and is deeply saddened by using the material in such a manner.
Investigations are still on going.
