Study examines 259 selfie deaths in 137 incidents

Researches from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Bhopal, have conducted a study on selfie deaths.

They examined 259 deaths which occurred in 137 incidents between October 2011 and November 2017.

Much like the tag clouds on selfie-deaths.com suggest, most incidents happened in India, followed by Russia and the United States, and  the top causes of death are drowning, falling and being hit by trains.

Victims were 72.5% male and 27.5% female, and had a mean age of 22.94 years. Maybe unsurprisingly, it was found that males were more prone to engage in risky behavior.

Read the study (it’s short) or at least look at their diagrams.
