In 2015, there have been 12 selfie related deaths (so far) and 8 attributed to nature’s most deadly killing machine.
Jokes abound, but dying trying to take a photo while on holiday is actually pretty sad. Be safe out there.
Mashable says, “It sounds like a joke, but unfortunately it isn’t: The deaths are a tragic reminder to travelers that focusing on a phone screen instead of unfamiliar surroundings is not safe.”
I guess the ultimate death defying prize, the selfie WITH a shark?
