The student was trying to take a photo with his friends when he fell into the water.
Rohon Mishra, a 19 year-old student, was attempting to take a selfie with his pals at the Bhimkund waterfall in Mayurbhanj district, Odisha, when he accidentally fell in the water and was swept away by a strong current.
The friends had gone to the place for a happy picnic and posed for a photo, but Rohon – who could not swim – slipped and fell.
Shocked onlookers attempted to save him, but their efforts were unsuccessful. Police and firefighters have begun a search for his body.
Sadly, this is far from the first selfie-related death. A recent global study found that 259 people died between 2011 and 2017 while attempting to take a photo of themselves.
