A recent medical study from India found that 259 people have died in 137 incidents when they practiced dangerous and reckless behavior while taking a selfie picture. They excluded deaths due to mobile phone usage and reports from non-English sources so the number of worldwide deaths could have been much higher. Reasons why people put themselves into potentially dangerous situations to get the perfect shot included social media recognition and self-expression, contests with prizes from schools all the way to the college level, trying to be "cool", and more. Young males tend to be more apt to seek out dangerous thrills so they accounted for 72.5% of the deaths even though females take more selfie pictures. The average age of death was 22.94 years old with a range from 10 - 68 years old. Most selfie deaths that occur around motor vehicles are reported as traffic accidents so they weren't accurately represented in the study. Some cities have started creating "no selfie" zones to combat the incidents of people getting seriously injured. The highest number of incidents and selfie-deaths has been reported in India followed by Russia, United States, and Pakistan. Drowning, transport, and fall form the topmost reasons for deaths caused by selfies. From October 2011 to November 2017, there have been 259 deaths while clicking selfies in 137 incidents. There have been 3 selfie-related deaths reported in 2011; 2 in 2013; 13 in 2014; 50 in 2015; 98 and 93, respectively, in 2016 and 2017.
