This is just awful, and is just further evidence that you should check your surroundings before selfieing. Yes, I just made that a word.
Yahoo reports, “A couple trying to take a selfie at a popular tourist spot in Portugal plunged nearly 100 feet to their deaths, authorities said. Australian Michael Kearns, 33, and his British girlfriend Louise Benson, 37, were standing on a wall overlooking the picturesque Praia dos Pescadores beach in Ericeira early Tuesday, when their phone slipped.”
Authorities believe their phone slipped and when they grabbed for it they both fell 100 feet to the rocks below. Be careful our there selfiers!
