The number of people who are killed while taking selfies in dangerous locations is on the rise, according to a new report.
An average of 43 people per year have died while taking selfies since 2011, with drowning and falls among the biggest killers.
The study shows that men account for seven in ten of these fatalities, while millennial daredevils – those aged 20-29 – make up almost half of selfie deaths.
Scientists suggest ‘no selfie’ zones should be established across the globe to curtail the epidemic of accidental deaths.
A number of popular tourist spots in India have already implemented selfie bans this year following a string of recent fatalities.
