MOSCOW, July 7. /TASS/. The Russian Interior Ministry on Tuesday presented selfie safety tips after a number of people tragically died taking photos of themselves.
The guide entitled "Take Safe Selfies — A Cute Selfie May Cost You Your Life" aims to minimize the number of selfie fatalities and stop the dangerous selfie trend, ministry spokesperson, Yelena Alekseyeva, told a news conference.
"At least 100 people were injured in 2015 while taking selfies, and ten people died," she said.
A young Russian girl died on Saturday after falling from a bridge next to the Moscow City business centre, where she was taking a selfie. Another dangerous selfie incident occurred in early June when two 15-year-old girls were electrocuted in the southern Russian city of Taganrog after climbing on the roof of a freight train to take a selfie.
"Before taking selfies, people should remember that the pursuit of likes on social media may lead to tragic consequences," the spokesperson said. She added that the selfie guide would be distributed mainly between schoolchildren and students.
