Have selfies become a new epidemic?

Many people have met their end trying to take photos of themselves.

The latest being this American tourist, Diannarosa Alduncin Delgado who died after falling off a cliff while taking a selfie on the Greek island of Zakynthos.

Delgado was not the first to die on that cliff. Two months ago a Greek student aged 23 also died while taking a selfie on the same spot.

The 22-year-old Delgado who had dual American-Cuban citizenship, was on holiday with her boyfriend, Farid Mohsanshervin, also a U.S. citizen.

According to reports, Ms Delgado was taking a photo against the backdrop of Shipwreck Cove, one of Greece’s most idyllic beaches and a popular tourist area.

It’s named after a ship that ran aground during a smuggling trip which can still be seen on the sands. The cliffs surrounding it are up to 900 feet tall.

A police officer involved in the case told local media: “She was trying to capture the moment with a selfie when she lost her balance and fell off.”

Ms Delgado’s boyfriend said that she was “standing as close as possible to the edge of the cliff to get the best possible shot of herself and the famous shipwreck."
