Three Indian college-goers have been killed by a train after attempting to take selfies in front of the moving vehicle.
The accident happened at about 9.30 am IST on Monday on the railway tracks off Mathura, near capital New Delhi. A fourth student in the group escaped unhurt.
The deceased have been identified by police as Yakub, Iqbal and Afzal, all aged between 20 and 22, according to the Times of India.
The four friends were travelling to Agra to see the Taj Mahal when they tried the stunt, according to the survivor, Aneesh.
The phenomenon of the selfie is relatively modern, yet several people have already died and been injured while taking pictures of themselves in dangerous locations.
The craze for selfies amongst youth has been recorded in PEW Research Center data that reported that 91% of teenagers have taken a selfie. So much so, Oxford officially named 'selfie' the word of the year in 2013.
The craze goes beyond youth as seen with Barack Obama's selfie at Nelson Mandela's funeral service which went viral.
