Taking a selfie with a friend cost a man his life on the evening of July 2, 2016, when the duo was on its way to Mussoorie, northern India.

The man fell in a 150-feet deep ravine where he was pulled out with the help of locals and the police. He was rushed to a local hospital where doctors declared him dead on arrival.

As The Tribune reports, Mussoorie police said that Priyank Gupta (32), along with his friend, were going to Mussoorie for a short trip on their bicycles. As they reached the ravine near Chuna Khala on the Mussoorie-Dehradun road, they began taking selfies after parking on the cliff side of the road. Priyank, who was trying to get a better view of the valley, lost balance and fell into the 150-feet ravine.

Local residents informed the police which reached the spot and rushed Priyank to St Mary’s Government Hospital, where he was declared dead on arrival.
