We joke about selfies as often as news and other content allows us. Unfortunately, not all selfie news is humorous though.
Late last week, an Indian teen passed away after accidentally shooting himself while trying to take a selfie with a handgun.
On Friday, April 29th, Fifteen-year-old Ramandeep Singh was taking a selfie his father’s .32 caliber pistol when he accidentally discharged the gun. According to local police, the safety wasn’t engaged.
After the incident, Singh was taken to a hospital for emergency surgery, but he succumbed to his injuries just a day later.
As noted by CNN, India leads the world in selfie-related deaths. So much so that Mumbai, India had to create sixteen selfie-free zones to prevent selfie-related deaths.
