The Last Selfie
September 7, 2015 11:15am CST
The trend to take selfies is very popular, but it's better to play safe, your next selfie could also be your last. In Russia, the Interior Ministry has launched a safety campaign seen the increased number of fatal accidents among people who take selfies. Just to mention a few, a 17 year old Russian girl fell from a bridge 28 feet from the ground while she was taking a selfie, just to impress her friends. Two young women were killed in a crash, because they were taking a selfie while they were singing and driving the car. Yesterday, a man was killed by lightning while he was using a selfie stick during a storm. Are you a selfie addict? Remember that safety comes first.

In Indonesia, 2-3 months ago there was teenager fell to valley because he took selfie on the edge of ravine. His friend has warned him, but he didn't listen. I myself doesn't really like selfie. I don't feel good in front of camera

@LadyDuck They forget about the rule of "safety first" I guess. I feel pity to those who fighting so hard just to get some selfie that they will post on facebook or somewhere else to show off. I know it's a lot of fun to get some 'likes' or 'a comments as appreciation. But it becomes stupidity when you create accident for that silly reason

I never take selfies. I prefer taking photos of other things. I've also heard a lot lately about the danger some people expose themselves to when taking selfies, but photographers have had serious accidents taking other kinds of photos too.

I know this is an old thread, Anna, but I thought I'd throw my own twisted views out there for you to see. I am guilty of taking the occasional selfie. When I have a severe allergic reaction to something, my face and body can undergo drastic changes, so if I can see at all, I try to take a selfie to show people what the allergic reaction did to me this time. I still have the last one I took. I am going to post it on this thread. Yeah, @LadyDuck , I look like the Pillsbury Dough Boy!
