In the video, posted below, the boy was seen holding a sliver of the intensely hot pepper, which is said to be 150 times hotter than Tabasco sauce and 400 times hotter than a jalapeño.
“Don’t swallow it,” a voice in the background warned just before the boy put the pepper in his mouth. The teen swallowed the pepper, and immediately began screaming and crying while running around the room in a panic.
