Selfie Danger: More Deadly Than Sharks?

Are you addicted to taking selfies? Well, you might want to think twice before striking a pose because taking selfies can be more dangerous than swimming with sharks!

That's right, according to a study conducted by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, more people die from injuries sustained while taking selfies than from shark attacks every year. In 2016 alone, 49 people lost their lives while taking selfies, while only 5 people were killed by sharks.

So what is it about taking selfies that is so deadly? For starters, people tend to get reckless and let their guard down when taking a selfie, putting themselves in danger by taking risks that they would not normally take. Selfie-takers have been known to climb to the top of buildings, lean over dangerous ledges, and even step in front of moving vehicles, all in the name of getting that perfect shot.

Another factor is distraction. Many people become so engrossed in taking the perfect selfie that they lose awareness of their surroundings, leading to accidents like falling down stairs, tripping over objects, and even walking into oncoming traffic.

But it's not just the reckless behavior of selfie-takers that makes taking selfies dangerous. The rise of the selfie stick has also contributed to the increase in selfie-related injuries and deaths. People have been known to accidentally hit others with their selfie sticks, causing injury, and even to electrocute themselves by using their selfie stick near power lines.

So, what's the moral of the story? It's simple: be careful when taking selfies. Remember that your safety is more important than any picture, and never take unnecessary risks in the pursuit of the perfect shot. And if you're really itching for that selfie, maybe it's time to put down the phone and go swimming with the sharks instead!
