13. Selfie Turned Reality
Russia hits again with another case of death by selfie. A 17-year-old teenager attempted the selfie of the millennium, by tying himself to a rope and making it look as if he was falling from the top of the building.
We do not know what went wrong in his calculation, but what happened was truly tragic and painful just to watch. The rope snapped, offering the young lad a free fall he did not expect.
The most interesting bit of information is that the event is by no means isolated. A youth subculture called “roofers” is sending an increasing number of youngster in jail for illegal access on rooftops and stunts like the one we talked about. Father Putin is certainly not proud of this.
