Boy (16) falls from rock in Greece and dies after taking selfie

On Friday, April 20, 2018, around noon, a boy climbed onto a rock to take a selfie in Keratsini, Piraeus, Greece. He slipped, fell 60 meters and suffered fatal injuries.

Staff working at the park were alerted that a young man was in danger. When they went to the spot, the teenager was on the ground, but was still alive. They did not move him until the ambulance arrived.

His friends are reported to have said “we should not have let him do it.” The group of youngsters had climbed the rock from the back, as access through the park was not possible.

The victim was rushed to hospital by ambulance, however despite doctors’ efforts, they were unable to save him and he passed away hours later.
