There are many ways to die in this world, yet many would not include taking selfies as one of these dangerous acts. However, in recent years there is no denying that selfies are becoming more and more lethal. At this stage, there have been cases all over the world of individuals injuring, or even killing themselves, all for the sake of a photo that they believe will make them appear cool on social media.

Alarmingly often, selfies are taken way too far, as people go to ridiculous lengths to capture themselves in risky or astonishing positions. This is very common among younger generations, as they often seem to base their self-worth on the number of likes they accumulate online. Obviously, the world has become selfie obsessed and this list highlights just why that is so dangerous. The cases listed below all revolve around individuals who died trying to capture "the perfect selfie." Sadly, these pictures are now commonly referred to as "killfies" instead. It's safe to say that if they had the chance to speak now, the people on this list would all agree that a photo was definitely not worth it.

Mohammad el-Shaar was a regular 16-year-old, spending the day hanging out with friends, when a tragedy struck. The incident occurred in Lebanon, when Mohammed posed for a selfie with three friends. This is a classic case of wrong place, wrong time, as moments after the picture was taken a car exploded, in what was later revealed to have been a terrorist attack. Mohammad can be seen posing for his fatal last photo in a red hoodie, as his best friend Omar Bekdash takes the picture on his phone. After the tragedy, Mohammad’s mother spoke about how her son had a love of basketball and dreamed of becoming an NBA star. She explained how Mohammad had given her a signed basketball and told her “you keep this because some day I'm going to be famous.” Unfortunately, Mohammad never got the opportunity to see his dream come true.
