Some day, when you die, there will be a last photo of you floating out there somewhere. It’s crazy to think that some of those last photos were taken by the subject themselves, but that’s what happened to these people in a series of tragic events.
No matter where you stand on the issue of selfies, it’s clear these are all terrible events. Not all of these people put themselves at unnecessary risk for a cool picture, but a few did and that makes it even worse.
After these photos were taken, the most terrible thing happened…

It’s disturbing to see the last images of anyone before tragedy strikes. Hopefully, these pictures helped friends and family connect with the victims. Tell your friends not to take crazy risks for the sake of a selfie. It just isn’t worth it.
More people should realize not to endanger themselves for the sake of a photo.
