It is a sad day when more people have died from Selfie injuries than shark attacks, but that’s exactly what has happened in 2015.
So far 16 people have died because of selfies, while eight people have died from shark attacks.
Here are some examples,
A woman in January posed with boyfriend on a South African cliff before falling to her death.
People actually have taken selfies with Grenades? Well, in January two men died while taking a selfie after pulling the pin fro a grenade. In order to rule out foul play the police used the digital image to clear them.
Coming in at number 3 is people taking selfies in traffic. Three Indian students died while taking daredevil selfies in oncoming traffic.
Electricity is at number 4
In May: A 17-year-old Romanian touched a live electrical wire while posing atop a moving train and another teen in Russia climbed atop a bridge and touched a live wire while taking a selfie.
A 21-year-old Russian woman died while posing with a gun to her head. Even though it was loaded with rubber bullets the injury led to her death.
