First it was do it for the Vine, now it’s do it for the Gram. Whatever social media platform you’re doing things for, make sure you’re doing them safely.
According to CNN, over 250 people have died while taking selfies since 2011. And that doesn’t even take into account the past year at all.
The woman in the video below is darn lucky to say the least. The 20-year-old was visiting the Grand Canyon with her mom and taking pictures or videos or something on her phone. As you can see, she nearly falls into the canyon while walking backwards.
Now, she technically isn’t taking a selfie, but she is taking something (photo/video) of her mom. Let this be a lesson to you—if you’re on a narrow ledge with a big ass drop, pay attention. Just pay more attention in life in general.
