On April 1st, 2015, a German tourist fell to his death while trying to take a photograph of himself in the Italian mountains, according to national media reports.

The accident happened while the 60-year-old man was skiing between Obereggen and Pampeago, in Italy’s Trentino-Alto Adige region.

He reportedly took off his skis and went off-piste to take a photograph of himself, but is believed to have slipped and fallen 200 metres to his death.

The German man was not reported missing until late afternoon on Wednesday, when he did not arrive to pick his children up from their ski school.
