If it hasn’t already been made abundantly clear that selfies and vehicles are a dangerous combination, let’s add on to that with a story about airplanes. In 2014, 29-year old Colorado pilot Amritpal Singh took some friends on leisurely flight in a Cessna 150K. When taking selfies at a normal flight altitude started to get boring, Singh attempted some low altitude maneuvers to spice things up. Sadly, it caused a crash that killed both Singh and one of his passengers.

#4 The Selfie That Left Two Children Orphaned

It goes without saying that watching your parents killed in front of you is one of the most traumatic experiences a human being can go through. Just ask Batman. During a family vacation in Cabo de Roca, Portugal, two Polish children witnessed this exact thing happen in a totally preventable accident.

After making sure the children (ages 5 and 6) were safely behind a security railing, the parents stepped over and onto the ledge in order to get a great shot of themselves. As one would guess by now, the two slipped over the edge and onto the rocks and water below. To make things worse, the rising tides prevented authorities from recovering the bodies until the next day.

Since we’re already laying down some good advice, here’s some more. Basically, if you see a train coming down the tracks, you can rest assured that it’s moving way, way faster than you think it is. A 15-year old boy from India, identified only as “Edwin”, learned this the hard way. While walking alongside train tracks with a group of friends, Edwin heard a train approaching.

Thinking that an oncoming train in the background would make for primo selfie material, Edwin stood on the tracks and prepared to get the shot. Before he could say “cheese”, the train smashed into the boy in a moment so gory that his friends who witnessed it literally passed out.

The Taj Mahal in India is one of the most popular tourists destinations in the world. As such, one would assume that many precautions are taken to ensure visitor safety. And, while they are, sometimes it just takes a flight of concrete steps and a clumsy misstep to cause a tragedy.

In 2015, a Japanese tourist attempted to use a selfie stick to snap a photo of himself and three friends at the Royal Gate of the famous structure. In the process, the man and one of his friends slipped and tumbled down the steps. His friend walked away - well, OK, not exactly walked - with a fractured leg. The man, however, suffered head trauma and died shortly after.

Well, it’s time to get boats in on this action. Wrapping up the day following a picnic near Mangrul Lake in India, seven of the ten friends there decided to get themselves a sunset group selfie on their boat. All seven of them stepped to the edge of the boat - causing the boat to tip over, sending all seven into the dangerous lake waters. All seven died.
