So many additions for the Darwin Award list as selfie deaths in 2016 are well ahead of 2015’s pace. Put your phone down and look around!
From the CBS News article on selfie deaths:
Last year, more people died from selfies than shark attacks. And many more have been injured by taking their own picture. Deaths have been caused by distracted photo-takers falling off cliffs, crashing cars, being hit by trains and shooting themselves while posing with guns. Apparently, guns don't kill people -- selfies do. Things have gotten so bad that Mumbai has outlawed selfies after 19 deaths in India. Pamplona officials have banned them during the annual Running of the Bulls. And New York just became the first state to ix-nay "tiger selfies," for obvious reasons.
