Will it help, tho?

As if there aren't enough frightening things to worry about in the world, concerns continue to plague international news about the growing dangers of selfies. So much so that certain countries are fighting against them with "no selfie zones" — the latest disturbing headline stemming from another accident in India that has reportedly claimed the lives of two people. 

Last week, an 18-year-old girl and two of her friends slipped and fell into the rocky waters of the Arabian Sea, near Bandra Bandstan, a popular tourist destination in India. A passerby jumped in to rescue the 3 girls, but was unfortunately found days later washed up in a creek nearby. The earlier mentioned 18-year-old girl has yet to be found, and is presumed dead, with only her two friends surviving the accident. 

In response to the deaths, Indian officials are now asking the government to enact more "no selfie zones" — or areas where taking a photo of yourself is highly discouraged because of the perceived danger of being distracted. Mumbai police spokesperson Dhananjay Kulkarni tells BBC that the places where taking selfies are considered risky include Bandra Bandstand, Sion Fort and Worli Fort — all places popular with tourists.

"The police will now approach the city's municipality to prevent accidents at such spots due to people taking selfies," Kulkarni says. "The municipality may deploy life guards and install warning signs." 

According to New Delhi Television, violators of the no selfie zones won't be fined, but do so at their own risk or peril. Last September, numbers released by the BBC showed the rising death toll of selfies surpassed that of shark attack victims. The deaths including car accidents, being electrocuted by live wires and even a few people accidentally shooting themselves in their quest for the perfectly hard-style photo.

What a way to go …
