(WTVR) - Remember that frighteningly funny elevator prank that recently took place in Brazil?

Imagine if you were in an elevator and the lights suddenly flickered out. When they came back on, you spotted a ghostly looking child with crazy hair holding a baby doll standing in the elevator. That was was enough to nearly send some women over the edge.

In fact, similar pranks could lead to jokesters getting slapped with an abduction charge.
