What if I tell you selfies have taken more lives than shark attacks in 2015? This might seem a joke at first but if you take out some time to stack up the statistics from all the deaths caused by shark attacks and selfies, you would have no other option but to believe. And act?
The latest incident has occurred in Rawalpindi city of Pakistan where a 22-year old man named Jamshaid Khan was killed while trying to take a selfie in front of a moving train.
Khan, an employee of Pakistan Railways and a track helper, tried to take a selfie while standing on the track when the fast moving train crushed him to death.
“The train crushed him and he was killed on the spot.” Deeba Shahnaz, a senior official of the rescue department, told Agence France-Presse (AFP).
The number of deaths caused while taking selfies is increasing day by day. More and more people end up giving their life just to capture an unforgettable daredevil moment in their camera.
