Couple dies while they tried to take a selfie

Couple plunged to their death from cliff in front of their young children as they tried to take a selfie

Touring the ocean views around Cabo de Roca, a married couple from Poland, accompanied by their two young children, posed for a photo along the cliffside in a dangerous spot past a protective barrier. According to local news reports, witnesses said the Polish couple fell while trying to take a selfie.

Police say the pair, who are yet to be named, may have been trying to take a photo of themselves moments before they fell.

The couple’s children, aged five and six, witnessed the accident and were taken into custody by Polish officials shortly after the incident. They are currently receiving psychological care and are expected to be reunited with family members who are en route to Portugal.

The parents apparently crossed a safety barrier in order to reach the cliff edge, but the police are still investigating their final moments.

A Spanish couple that was also at the location called emergency crews and rescuers tried to recover the bodies using a helicopter, but had to give up because of the rising tide on Saturday. Local authorities recovered two bodies from the bottom of the cliff on Monday. They are estimated to have plunged about 260 feet into the ravine below.

Sadly, this is not the first time someone has suffered grave injuries while attempting to take a photo.

Russian 17-year-old Xenia Ignatyeva plunged 30ft to her death as she climbed on a railway bridge to take a selfie.

She fell and was hit by 1,500 volts when she tried to grab live electrical wires.

Similarly, Italian teenager Isabella Fracchiolla fell 60ft on to jagged rocks while trying to take a selfie on a seafront in the town of Taranto, in south-eastern Italy.

The 16-year-old schoolgirl suffered serious injuries and could not be saved by doctors.
