Teen in India dies taking a selfie while pointing a gun to his head
Yet another selfie casualty.
There’s an old gun-safety rule that says, “Never point a gun at something you don’t intend to kill.” Unfortunately, an Indian teenager has become an example of why.
Ramandeep Singh, 15, tragically died after taking a selfie while pointing his father’s handgun at his own head.
Singh, who was from Pathankot in Punjab state, was posing with his father’s .32 caliber pistol. The gun’s safety catch wasn’t on, police said, and Singh accidentally pulled the trigger. Singh was rushed to the hospital and underwent surgery for his injuries on Friday, but died on Sunday afternoon.
In what has to be one of the strangest statistic recorded, India has the highest number of selfie-related deaths in the world. And there are quite a lot of ways to die, from falling off bridges to getting hit by trains. There are even “no-selfie zones” in Mumbai around dangerous areas, namely along the oceanfront. So please, practice safe selfies.
