suicide by selfie

A couple believed to be from Britain and Australia have fallen to their death from a wall overlooking a popular tourist beach in Portugal, apparently losing their balance after taking a selfie....
Rui Pereira da Terra, the head of the rescue service in Cascais port near Lisbon, told the news agency Lusa that officials suspected the man and woman had been taking a selfie on a wall above the beach when they fell.[Agence France-Presse]
The ultimate selfie.


  1. To die like a throwaway slapstick scene in a summer rom-com movie, how tragic and meaningless.

    1. “Other tourists have been reported to have fallen off the beach wall.”

      Hope the authorities finally erect a guard rail.
