People Are Dying for the Perfect Selfie

\" \" Men and women across the globe are taking extreme risks to get the perfect selfie — and paying the ultimate price with their life. While American selfie deaths have been widely reported in the States, India ranks as the country with the highest number (150), followed by Russia (16), the U.S. (14) and Pakistan (11). And while \"risky behavior\" caused more deaths and incidents than \"non-risky behavior,\" females were less likely to die due to risky behavior than non-risky behavior. Researchers considered incidents \"risky behavior\" when it was \"quite evident that the person took risk to click a selfie and lost her life.\" Though the study only analyzed news reports up to November 2017, the number of selfie deaths doesn't appear to be dwindling.
