Last week I wrote about a couple who tragically fell to their death in Yosemite National Park at Taft Point.
There wasn’t much detail about the couple or what had happened to cause the tragedy. Last I had read, an investigation was under way to figure out what happened.
Yahoo reports that it appears now that the accident took place while the Indian couple were taking a selfie.
The couple were identified as Vishnu Viswanath, 29 and Meenakshi Moorthy, 30. They had a blog called Holidays and HappilyEverAfters where they posted about their trips.
Yahoo mentioned how in a recent Instagram post, Moorthy “posted a photo of her sitting on the edge of the Grand Canyon and reflected about the “daredevilry” of taking pictures from dangerous locations.”
She also wrote, “Is our life worth just one photo?” Sad…
This isn’t the first time that taking a selfie has led to someone tragically dying. A couple fell to their death in Portugal just before the summer.
In the end, is it really worth putting your life in danger for a photo? I think we’d all agree that no, it isn’t.
