Oh the renowned selfie, a chance to display your best angles and show what you are up to in your day to day life. While selfies can be fun and creative, they can also be life threatening. The US National Library of Medicine recently released that there has been 259 deaths due to selfies in the years 2011-2017. These deaths are most often due to falling off tall buildings, slipping on tall mountains, and falling in bodies of water and drowning. An interesting statistic shared that 72.5% of the selfie related deaths were male while the remaining 27.5% were female. The average age was also revealed as 22.94.

“It is believed that selfie deaths are underreported and the true problem needs to be addressed.” the study states.

With this alarmingly high number of selfie-deaths, the US National Liberty of Medicine stresses that there needs to be “no-selfie zones” in order to minimize casualties. By doing this, hopefully people will be less willing to go to such extreme measures to take that perfect selfie.
