4 Die Trying To Take Selfie In River
A newly-married woman and three other family members were swept away and drowned while trying to take a selfie in a fast-flowing river in southern India, police said Monday.
The group of six were holding hands and standing in waist-deep water when one woman stepped into a sudden drop in the riverbed and slipped, pulling the others with her, a local police officer said.
The woman’s husband managed to save one woman but the rest of them — including his wife and a 14-year-old boy-drowned, according to India report.
Experts warn that youngsters obsessed with social media are going to extreme lengths to post selfies seen as daring and risky.
