Earlier Selfie Mishap Took Place In Kerala
In Kerala this, not the first time that selfie-related accidents have happened. Earlier in 2014, two teenagers died in an attempt to take a selfie with a train. A 15-year-old killed from a speedy train as attempted to click a selfie in front of the train. Whereas a 14-year-old tried to click selfie on top of a stationary train. Accidentally he came in contact with the overhead electric line leading to 60 per cent burn injuries and ultimately caused his death.
