Deadly Selfie

A global study from 2018 showed that searching for extreme selfies killed 259 people between 2011 and 2017.

Deadly Selfie

Researchers at the US National Library of Medicine recommend: "Selfies should not be done in dangerous places to reduce the number of deaths."
These places include mountain peaks, tall buildings and lakes, in which many people died.
Drowning, traffic accidents and falls were recognized as the most common cause of death.
But death from animals, electric shock, fire and firearms also often appeared in messages from all over the world.
In July of this year, 19-year-old Gavin Zimmerman crashed to death, taking a selfie on a cliff in New South Wales, Australia. Tomer Frankfurter died in September in Yosemite National Park in California after falling 250 meters while trying to take a selfie.
Self-related deaths are most common in India, Russia, the United States and Pakistan, and 72.5% of the dead are men.
Previously, studies were compiled from the pages of Wikipedia and Twitter, but according to researchers, did not give accurate results.
A new study also showed that the number of deaths is increasing.
In 2011, there were only three reports of death related to selfies, but this number increased to 98 in 2016 and 93 in 2017.
However, the researchers argue that the actual number of suicides may be much higher, because the cause of death is never called.
“It is believed that deaths from selfies are not recorded,” it says.
"Some road accidents that occurred because of the selfie are recorded as death due to a road accident."
“Thus, the true extent of the problem is underestimated. Therefore, it is important to assess the true state of affairs, the causes of suicide, so that appropriate measures can be taken. ”
