The World’s Most Dangerous Selfies

At this point, almost everyone has taken out their smartphone to snap a photo of themselves. In fact, you can probably find a selfie on your social media right now. (No need to check; you already know it’s true.)

But when taken in dangerous circumstances, selfies can also be deadly. Between 2011 and 2017, 259 people died in their pursuit of one. 

Often times, these precarious selfies are taken while traveling, with people scaling skyscrapers, cliffs and bridges to capture a photo to remember. Some people regularly take photos they know to be dangerous; others have posted a questionable shot or two, perhaps because they didn’t fully understand the risks involved.

If you want to take an amazing selfie, absolutely go for it. But the following shots, we think, took things too far.

He studied history at Yale and became obsessed with the 70s. Now he focuses on digging up stories nobody has written about to help grow our extensive knowledge of the past. He is the glue to our company and we are so lucky to have him on the team.
