Deaths tolls from dangerous selfies higher than shark attacks

Selfies all started like fun for people but now it has been taken to a high level of risk perceptions. In 2015 alone, at least 12 people have died while taking pictures of themselves making the practice more deadly than shark attacks, of which there have only been eight recorded deaths in 2015, according to tech news site Mashable.
 And, in June, a university graduate died after trying to take a selfie while hanging from a Moscow bridge. Most recently a 17-year-old boy fell to his death from a rooftop as he tried to take his picture for his Instagram page.
In the US recently a man died after shooting himself in the neck while taking a selfie. 
And, at Yellowstone National Park, officials issued a warning after five separate incidents of selfie-takers being gored by bison.
