More people suffered from selfies in 2015 than sharks

The passion for photographing oneself in extreme conditions has become widespread this year - cases of "selfies" with a fatal outcome have become more frequent. Most often, people are killed by falling from tall objects or being run over by a train.

An American Internet resource cites data according to which in 2015 12 people died from "selfies". At the same time, "only" 8 people died from shark attacks during the same period.

An example of a dangerous "selfie" is the case of a 66-year-old Japanese tourist who fell down a staircase in the Taj Mahal. It is also reported that in some parks and reserves it is officially forbidden to take "selfies" in front of animals.

If the rules of banal caution are not followed, "selfie" ceases to be a safe entertainment.
