The selfie is here to stay but not everybody who takes a selfie is so permanent. In fact, while millions of people every day manage to take a selfie without any particular harm coming to them; there are others who haven’t been so lucky just as we’re about to see. What they have in common is a certain lack of common sense combined with an inability to understand that there are times when a selfie might be best left untaken. With that in mind, we bring you a collection of 18 people who died for their art and for their selfie.
#18 She Touched a Live Wire and Now She’s Not Alive
Anna Ursu was only 18 when she decided that she’d take the selfie to end all selfies. She climbed up onto the roof of a train and then raised her leg to show how cool she was. The leg came into contact with the live wire; she wasn’t cool anymore, as she burst into flames. She died with nearly 50% of her body burned away.
