According to reports, Antonella Sicomero told her family she was going for a shower – but investigators are said to believe she was filming herself for the online craze.

Antonella’s dad however revealed that his little girl’s sister told him she had been taking part in a TikTok challenge.

“Antonella was playing the game of asphyxiation.

“My daughter, little Antonella, who dies because of an extreme game on TikTok, how can I accept it?”, the heartbroken dad reported told an Italy paper.

The police have, however, acquired Antonella pending investigation.

Public prosecutors in Palermo have opened two investigations for “instigation to suicide”.

Antonella’s mobile has been seized by investigators, who are looking into if she was broadcasting live, if she had been invited to play the game by someone else or if she was making the film for a friend.

Prosecutors also want to verify if she was copying videos of other TikTok users taking part in the challenge.

ANSA media agency report she arrived at hospital in cardiac arrest yesterday. Doctors fought to save her life but she was later declared brain dead and in an irreversible coma.

Her organs were donated to save three other children before her life support was switched off.

Dad Angelo said: “In this way, Antonella will save many children.”

TikTok said they would be fully cooperating with authorities.

“Our deepest sympathies are with the girl’s family and friends.

“We do not allow content that encourages, promotes, or glorifies dangerous behaviour that might lead to injury, and our teams work diligently to identify and remove content that violates our policies.

“While we have not currently found evidence of content on our platform that might have encouraged such an incident off-platform, we will continue to monitor closely as part of our continuous commitment to keep our community safe.

“We will also assist the relevant authorities with their investigation as appropriate”, a spokesman from TikTok said.
