Selfie deaths 259 people reported dead seeking the perfect picture

It is therefore important to assess the true burden, causes, and reasons for selfie deaths so that appropriate interventions can be made.” Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Related’No-selfie’ zones in India after photo deathsFebruary 25, 2016In “World”India: Man hit by train in quest for perfect selfieJanuary 25, 2018In “latest news”Less river deaths, no acts of piracy recorded in 2015 – MARADJanuary 6, 2016In “Internet” read more
