Teen in India dies taking a selfie while pointing a gun to his head

Theres an old gun-safety rule that says, Never point a gun at something you dont intend to kill. Unfortunately, an Indian teenager has become an example of why.

Ramandeep Singh, 15, tragically died after taking a selfie while pointing his father’s handgun at his own head.

Singh, who was from Pathankot in Punjab state, was posing with his fathers .32 caliber pistol. The guns safety catch wasnt on, police said, and Singh accidentally pulled the trigger. Singh was rushed to the hospital and underwent surgery for his injuries on Friday, but died on Sunday afternoon.

In what has to be one of the strangest statistic recorded, India has the highest number of selfie-related deaths in the world. And there are quite alot of ways to die, fromfalling off bridgestogetting hit by trains. There are even no-selfie zones in Mumbai around dangerous areas, namely along the oceanfront. So please,practice safe selfies.
