This is food for thought for those selfie addicts out there.
A schoolboy has fallen to his death after trying to take an ‘extreme selfie’ on a ninth-floor rooftop with his friend.
The 17-year-old student apparently climbed to the top of a building in Vologda, Russia, with a companion one evening last week with the intention of creating a photo of himself dangling off the towering structure.
Armed with rope and his phone, he approached the edge of the rooftop in the fading light and lowered himself over it.
But seconds later, the rope gave way and he plummeted nine floors, according to local media reports.
Although several bushes below the rooftop cushioned the boy’s fall, he suffered extensive and severe injuries.
He was rushed to a hospital in eastern Russia’s Vologda Oblast region, where he died around two hours later.
Before his death, the student had apparently become addicted to the thrill of taking ‘extreme selfies’.
He often captured such images on his phone before posting them to his Instagram page.
He ignored friends’ warnings that he was putting his life at risk by staging the pictures, it is reported.
