Last year January, 3 students died trying to take selfies in front of a moving train. In march again, in an attempt to take a selfie on a boat, 7 friends died when the boat capsized.
These selfie deaths even continue as two new deaths have been recorded in India this year. A girl and her two friends fell into the water while trying to take a selfie near Bandra Worli Sea Link in Mumbai. One of them drowned and her body hasn’t been recovered. A passerby who jumped in to save to other two got drowned.
The police is already working to prevent more selfie related deaths as a number of “no selfie zones” have been established. Speaking to BBC, Bandra Worli Sea Link in Mumbai said:
The police will now approach the city’s municipality to prevent accidents at such spots due to people taking selfies. The municipality may deploy life guards and install warning signs.
This isn’t only happening in India, a Russian woman reportedly shot herself while posing with a loaded gun for a selfie.
