The craze for selfie claimed another life in Tamil Nadu's Coimbatore. A 22-year-old man fell from a waterfalls while taking a selfie at hilly Nilgiris district, police said.
Ranjithkumar, who went on a weekend sight-seeing trip, lost his balance and fell from Catherine Falls in Kotagiri while trying to click a selfie on Saturday, police said.
The police found the body of the man on Sunday and handed over to his family.
Such an incident is not new. Similar incidents happen in India on almost every other day. Earlier, a 30-year-old man was trampled to death by a stray elephant at a village near Rourkela in Odisha on September 2 when he was trying to take a selfie with the jumbo, a forest official said.
The incident took place in presence of forest department officials who tried to chase away the elephant from entering human habitated areas.
The deceased had been identified as Ashok Bharati (30) and the incident took place near Mandiakudar village close to Kansbahal, nearly 25 kms from Rourkela.
