Selfies Killed More People Than Sharks This Year

This is not a joke.
Selfies Killed More People Than Sharks This Year

When people are asked what's the worst way you could die, the usual answers are drowning, burning alive or getting eaten by a shark. But at least if that happened, people would feel bad for you. But if you died because you were too busy taking selfie, people might be sad, but they would probably also have a good laugh about it later.

But at least if that happened, you wouldn't be the only one. 12 people experienced "death-by-selfie" this year. Compare that to the 8 deaths related to shark attacks and we might have a new kind of horror movie on our hands.

Most selfie deaths happen by falling. One man died after falling down the stairs of the Taj Mahal. And a few people got hit either by a car or a train.

With the rise in crazy selfies going viral online tourists are constantly trying to outdo each other in the danger department.

Selfies have been banned from the running of the bulls in Spain because people were stopping to take pictures instead of running the fuck away.  One park in Colorado even had to close because people kept tying to take selfies with bears.
