#1 No Fear of Heights


Xenia Ignatyeva took a selfie from a bridge 28 feet off the ground. She was only trying to impress her friends. The 17-year-old Russian girl then lost her balance and fell on a cable, which tragically electrocuted her. The original story can be found here. 

#2 Jenni Rivera


In December of 2012 Mexican pop star Jenni Rivera and her entourage took this selfie right before taking off on a private jet. Sadly, it crashed, leaving no survivors. The story can be found here.

#3 Happy


On April 26, 2014 Courtney Sanford posted this picture of her reacting to the Pharrel Williams song ‘Happy’ while driving through North Carolina. No one expected that seconds later she crashed into a truck and the accident proved to be fatal. Please don’t text and drive! The story can be found here.

#4 Jadiel

This is a selfie snapped by a famous Puerto Rican reggaetón musician Jadiel, uploaded to Instagram moments before he had a fatal motorcycle crash in New York in May, 2014. Another unfortunate example of why keeping your eyes on the road and of your phone can save your life. The story can be found here.

 #5 MH17 Selfie
 Gary Slok and his mother took this selfie minutes before taking off from Amsterdam on Malaysian Airlines flight MH17, which was shot down over Ukraine in July, 2014. The Slok family are one of many families who lost their lives. The story can be found here.

#6 On Top of the Train


In March 2014 a 21-year-old man died in Jaén, Spain by electrocution when he climbed to the top of a moving train to take a selfie. Though obvious, it’s never a good idea to climb on top of a moving train. Be careful! The story can be found here.

#7 Cliff Selfie

A Polish couple on vacation in Portugal tried to take a selfie on the edge of a cliff on August 10, 2014 . . . and they both fell to their death. I am all for the moment and taking pictures to last a lifetime, but it’s important to make sure you’ll have the lifetime to look back on them too. Stay safe! I hope this couple rests in peace.The story can be found here.

#8 The Dangers of Social Media and Outdoing Your Friends


Selfies are great, and I myself am guilty of taking many creative selfies as well. However, as I’ve lost a friend to what he thought was a cool idea, I hope to reach out to everyone and let you know that you don’t need to be extreme to have fun. Whether you’re driving or enjoying selfies in public parks stay safe and make sure your friends stay safe as well. Your life is more important than any selfie.
