Newlywed and three family members drown trying to take a selfie

Newlywed and three family members drown trying to take a selfie”

The couple, both from Bargur in Krishnagiri, were married last month.

Her husband, G Perumalsamy, 25, survived and managed to save his 15-year-old sister Yuvarani Perumalsamy. The teenagers got into trouble in the water when the young brother, 14, slipped pulling over his two sisters, 18 and 19, along with newly married Nivedha and her sister in law. Their bodies were later retrieved and transported to Uthangarai Government Hospital.

They had jumped out of the way when they spotted a train approaching, only to be hit by another train coming in the opposite direction, according to the BBC.

Authorities in India have launched campaigns to warn people against posing for risky pictures.

They found that the most selfie deaths occurred in India, followed by Russian Federation, the U.S. and Pakistan.

According to the US National Library of Medicine study, India has the highest number of "selfie deaths" in the world, followed by Russian Federation, the US and Pakistan.

Selfies have grown a more critical trend, with a 2018 study issued in the Journal of Family Medicine and Primary Care reporting that more than 250 people died while taking selfies from October 2011 to November 2017.

"Drowning, transport, and fall form the topmost reasons for deaths caused by selfies".

Agam Bansal, the study's lead author, told The Washington Post a year ago: "The selfie deaths have become a major public health problem".

India is something of a hot-spot for selfie deaths, according to an investigation into the phenomenon past year. Most of the victims, around 72 per cent, were men under the age of 30.

"If you're just standing, simply taking it with a celebrity or something, that's not harmful".

"Individuals need to be educated regarding certain risky behaviors and risky places where selfies should not be taken", the authors conclude.

An Indian man pulled his sister from the waters of a dam in India but was unable to save his other four relatives, including his newly-wed bride, after they slipped as they posed for a group photograph.
