UPDATE: This article has been updated to reflect the accuracy of the stories. Sources have been included with each story. Some images do not reflect the actual person or event from the story. This is because in some cases the nature of the endangerment where the person took their selfie can’t be perceived from the picture alone (as is the case with our first story). We used photos that depict the event as much as possible and have linked the story for the original photos. We apologize for the confusion, and we’ve linked all the sources so you can look at the originals for verification. -The BoredBug Team

Xenia Ignatyeva took a selfie from a bridge 28 feet off the ground. She was only trying to impress her friends. The 17-year-old Russian girl then lost her balance and fell on a cable, which tragically electrocuted her. The original story can be found here.
