A group of 10 youths had gone for a picnic near Mangrul lake in Kuhi Taluka,  India, on March 22nd, 2015.

Seven of them got onto a local boat in the lake to take their pictures. As they were taking selfies while standing on one side of the boat, it tilted and they fell into the water and drowned, Nagpur rural police said.

Their other three friends raised an alarm following which a huge crowd gathered near the lake. However, the boys could not be traced due to lack of proper lighting in the area, police said.

The bodies were fished out the next morning.

The deceased were identified as Harshal Adamne (18), his brother Chetan Adamne (20), Govardhan Thote (18), Rahul Walode (23), Ram Shivarkar (24), Maqsood Sheikh (27) and Abdul Sayeed (21), all from Ashirwad Nagar in the city, police said.
