Selfies are easy and harmless enough to take: Just turn a camera around, strike a pose, and record yourself in a memorable place in time but sometimes the quest for a dramatic photo can also endanger the lives of photographers and the people around them.
While these cool-looking images are fodder for Facebook posts and at times can make headlines, they also can sometimes be deadly.
Here’s a look at some of the most deadly selfies :
