A girl from Drogheda was almost knocked out cold after her ice bucket challenge went painfully wrong.

Warning: Video contains strong language

Teresina Bell, dressed in swimming goggles and water wings, squealed as she was doused in freezing water as part of the charity craze.

However the worst was yet to come, as she raced off only to crash straight into a clothes line, suffering a nasty bump to the head.

"Get ice on it, quick," a man is heard saying, as friends come to her aid.

Teresina, whose ice bucket video has racked up over a million views, later posted on Facebook to say she is on the mend after the unfortunate incident.

She added: "The swollen lip and face is going down. Lip and forehead is black and blue. 50 shades of colouring the next few days I say lol."

The ice bucket challenge, aimed at raising awareness of motor neurone disease, has become an internet phenomenon in recent weeks, with a host of famous faces among those taking part.
