    Selfie deaths: 259 people reported dead seeking the perfect picture

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/newsbeat-45745982

    The quest for extreme selfies killed 259 people between 2011 and 2017, a 2018 global study has revealed.
    Researchers at the US National Library of Medicine recommend that 'no selfie zones' should be introduced at dangerous spots to reduce deaths.
    These would include the tops of mountains, tall buildings and lakes, where many of the deaths occurred.

    Timely. I just went to my FB page where this was linked by a buddy of mine.

    Had a link to the story but it quit working. It made the national news. Woman gets attacked by jaguar at the Arizona Zoo trying to get a selfie.

    Crap. Worked when I tested it. Oh well.

    The title says it all. She crossed a barrier at the zoo to get a selfie in front of the jaguar and got swiped by the animal.
