Netflix lifted the usually tightly sealed lid on its viewership numbers in a recent tweet that disclosed 45 million subscriber accounts had watched the thriller, “Bird Box,” during its first seven days on the service.

In the week since the release of “Bird Box,” a film in which two children navigate a forest blindfolded to avoid supernatural entities who cause people to die just by looking at them, fans nationwide have taken the #BirdBoxChallenge, which involves walking around blindfolded.

However, when a group of people from Bedford-Stuyvesant took the challenge, one of them may have had an accident, according to NBC New York.

In a video posted to Twitter, the group shuffles along the sidewalk until one man runs around the corner. When the cameraman catches up with him, the man is seen lying on the ground at the bottom of a stairway at the Kingston-Throop Avenue subway station, NBC New York reported.

In a tweet on Tuesday, Netflix asked fans not to hurt themselves while attempting the challenge, NBC New York said.
