Nowadays it is not enough to have fun and do something special, it must be documented in the form of a selfie. If it’s not shared on social media, how can people know you are living a full, rich life. While focusing on getting the perfect shot, folks are ignoring their basic safety instincts of paying attention to their surroundings, instead, getting seriously hurt in freak selfie accidents. Last year, the travelling site Condē Nast Travel said there were at least ten selfie-related deaths.
People are falling down stairs, bridges, have been shot in the head, and gored by bisons. The situation has gotten so dangerous that the European Uniton proposed last year to ban selfies in major landmarks like the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the Trevi Fountain in Rome. These tragedies and serious accidents, however, are not exclusive to important tourist attractions only. ->**WARNING: The photos and video contain graphic images.**<-.
