This is scary...

Tags: Life, Trending., Selfie

These new results are actually pretty scary… more people have died this year taking a selfie than getting attacked by a shark!

At least 12 people have been killed taking selfies, while only eight have died in shark attacks

People have fallen down the steps of the Taj Mahal, had car accidents, fallen off bridges and been electrocuted in an effort to take the perfect selfie.

All over the world people are trying to create awareness to stop people doing dangerous things in order to get a good selfie.

In Russia, a poster was released warning the public of the dangers of doing such things as taking a selfie while holding a gun.

In Australia, a 16-storey rock that resembles a wedding cake has been cordoned off because despite warnings it could collapse at any time, people continued to take photos on it.

Hopefully more people will think before they pout after these results!
