Travellers and phone-camera lovers need to note a new danger that has recently come light. This new life-threatening hazard has sprung in the past few years and is now a ubiquitous part life. It is also proving to be twice as lethal as being killed a shark. What is this potential new menace? Well, it is the selfie. Yes – love 'em or hate 'em, the desire to take a photo yourself front of a world-famous site or to strike a pose and pout a friend has resulted more deaths in 2015 than shark attacks. It has been reported that so far this year, 12 people have died as a result trying to take a selfie. This compares to just six deaths due unprovoked shark attacks.

Selfie-related accidents can happen all manner of circumstances. The website Wikipedia.com has detailed the twelve deaths seen this year. They include two Russian men who were killed while taking a selfie a hand grenade; three Indian students who were killed an oncoming train while taking selfies train tracks; and an American woman who fell her death while taking a selfie her boyfriend a cliff in South Africa. The latest death came last month when a Japanese tourist died falling the stairs while trying to get a shot of himself the Taj Mahal in India. There may be more. A Russian government spokeswoman told reporters that July, there were, "dozens selfie-related deaths" Russia alone.
