Recently, taking selfies has become a popular practice among young people. Most people take selfies to capture moments of joy but sometimes, these moments can turn into moments of tragedy. Recently, a girl fell in a river while taking a selfie. According to police reports, the girl was posing for a picture, when she lost balance and fell into the river. Before she could be rescued, the water swept her away. Such incidents have been taking place quite a lot lately. On August 16, another such incident happened. An 11-year-old girl drowned after falling into the river while taking a selfie. With the increase of smart phone users, the number of such incidents is also increasing. I request the people to be careful when taking selfies. In fact, they should avoid doing so in such dangerous locations.
