More tourists are “dying by selfie”


Tourists warned against selfies in dangerous places
More and more tourists are risking injury and death to take the ultimate selfie during their travels.
So far in 2015, the number of deaths of people taking selfies has risen to 12. Most recently, a 66-year-old Japanese tourist died when he fell down stairs posing at the Taj Mahal in India. His companion suffered a broken leg.
Other incidents this year include a man who was gored to death taking a picture during a bull run in a Spanish town, and a tourist from Singapore who fell from cliffs in Bali while attempting a picture.
Selfies with wild bears have caused the closure of a park in Canada, after visitors kept getting too close to the animals to take photographs.
A woman was attacked by a bison in Yellowstone National Park when she turned away from the animal to take a selfie. Luckily she survived.
