Health officials are warning people to not participate in "Neknominate," a social media drinking game that has killed at least five people. People film themselves drinking large quantities of alcohol and sometimes doing stupid things (driving, for example), then that person "nominates" a friend or friends to do the game. Health officials say the game is "lethal" because of the amount of alcohol consumed in a short time.
