KAZAN, August 28. /TASS/. Two teenagers from Kazan, the capital of the Volga Republic of Tatarstan, who fell from a bridge while taking selfie, are in a critical condition, a local health official told TASS on Friday.
The boy and the girl, both 14, fell from the road bridge on Thursday evening and were hospitalized with serious injuries.
The Russian Interior Ministry presented selfie safety tips last month after a number of people tragically died taking photos of themselves, including a young Russian girl died after falling from a bridge next to the Moscow City business center, where she was taking a selfie.
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.
The selfie guide is distributed mainly between schoolchildren and students, the ministry is planning to spread the tips promotion.
