Tourist dies after falling while taking a selfie at Taj Mahal
According to the BBC, a Japanese tourist has died after a selfie-induced tumble at the Taj Mahal.
The 66-year-old man, along with his friend, apparently fell down a flight of stairs while trying to snap a picture.
Although the friend survived and only suffered a leg fracture, the man experienced serious head trauma.
He was immediately knocked unconscious and ultimately died of his injuries after being rushed to a private nursing home in the vicinity of the opulent mausoleum.
The massive attraction, which a poet once described as, "a teardrop on the cheek of eternity," receives around 12,000 visitors per day.
It was built by Emperor Shah Jahan as a testament to love after his wife passed away during childbirth.
