Unwise selfies lead to deaths
Can a selfie really be harmful? After all, you’re the one taking the picture, so consent isn’t an issue. Of course, if it’s sexting, that’s another matter altogether.
A recent incident in Mexico City highlights the dangers of selfies mixed with weapons. Twenty-one year old Oscar Otero Aguilar was drinking with two friends at one of their homes. Oscar wanted to take a picture to post on Facebook.
He posed with a gun pointed to his head, and it went off killing him on site. One friend was arrested and the other fled and remains a fugitive. Do we really have to remind our readers that guns are not toys or props?
In another such incident, 23-year-old Sylwia Rajchel of Poland was vacationing in Seville, Spain. The medical student was taking a selfie on the Puente de Triana Bridge when she lost her footing and fell fifteen feet to the concrete abutment below. Paramedics were unable to revive her.
