A selfie death

Recently, a teenager in Chennai, India died because he got hit by a train. He was taking a selfie and got too close to the oncoming train. There have been numerous cases reported in India of people getting killed while taking selfies because they were a bit too careless. Last year, out of the approximately 30 known deaths caused by taking selfies around the globe, about half were in India. Last month, the police in India’s largest city, Mumbai, identified dangerous selfie-taking areas.
