selfie on a ledgeThe news that Selfies have killed more people so far this year than sharks has received wide coverage recently. There have been 12 selfie deaths and eight deaths from sharks. We mention it again because the solution seems clear: teach sharks to take selfies.

The most common selfie deaths are from falls. A Japanese tourist fell on the steps of the Taj Mahal; others have stepped back a pace too far to make it clear they were standing on a cliff. People have also died trying to take a picture of themselves next to a speeding train, an angry bear, a charging bull and the Tour de France (probably lying next to an angry Frenchman).
