On Sunday, 10th February 2019, an unidentified man almost died while attempting to take a selfie.
The incident occurred in picturesque Diamond beach in Iceland. The unknown man was climbing on the icebergs littered on the beach and fell from top of an iceberg while attempting a selfie. The giant waves toss the icebergs which weigh about a tonne each. The tourist was fortunate that one of the ice bergs didn’t fall on top of him.
Local guide and photographer KristjÃ¡n Karlsson, was in the vicinity taking pictures and published them to make aware of the dangers of acting callously in the Diamond beach.
