More people die taking selfies than in shark attacks
Would you stand on the edge of a cliff for that ideal photo?
A lot of people would.
So many that more people have died taking a selfie than being attacked by a shark.
The Journal of Family Medicine and Primary Care in India found that 259 people worldwide died in 137 selfie-related accidents between 2011 and 2017, compared to just 50 people killed by sharks.
And a new survey found that 41% of us have already risked our safety in pursuit of a selfie.
While there might be more ladies taking selfies in general, the men are more likely to take risks, according to a poll conducted by the smartphone case company Case24.com.
The company’s survey found 61% of males would accept the challenge of a cliff-edge photo, compared to 38% of females.
