World's Most Dangerous Selfie?


Death by selfie is unfortunately a thing in Russia.

The country has witnessed such a noteworthy number of people getting killed while trying to get the best angle for their smartphone photos that the police started a campaign to spread awareness on the selfie's do's and don'ts.



The instructions illustrate that it is not advisable to take a selfie with wild animals or guns, in the middle of the street, on the roof of your house and in other risky situations.

According to AP, at least 10 Russians have been killed and 100 injured while taking selfies this year.



And here are some people that definitely didn't read the instructions before taking selfies with a bear:
