Earlier this month, a Class 11 student accidentally shot his 23-year-old cousin while trying to take a selfie together, while posing with the pistol. The incident took place in southeast Delhi's Sarita Vihar.
In January, a 30-year-old woman and her five-year-old son drowned in a river in Odisha's Rayagada district while taking selfies. The woman had gone to a suspension bridge on the Nagabali river with her son and daughter. They positioned themselves on a rock beside the river, and starting taking selfies. Suddenly, the trio slipped and fell into the water. Locals managed to rescue the girl, but the woman and her son drowned.
