Sri Lanka had the Sixth Most selfie-related accidents in the World

Sri Lanka recorded the World’s sixth most selfie-related accidents over the past decade, according to Inkifi.

The country experienced six causalities from selfie-related accidents in the period and five of the casualties occurred on Railway lines.

The other causality took place at the World’s End, a sheer cliff about 4,000 feet (1,200 meters) high located in the up-country.

India topped the list with 176 selfie-related deaths and injuries followed by the United States and Russia.

“Despite the risks, some people will go to some very extreme lengths to get the perfect selfie for social media. While scaling a skyscraper, standing right by the edge of a cliff, or posing next to a wild animal might all rack up the likes, these types of daredevil selfies can have deadly consequences,” Inkifi said.
