For you bros who think that trying to capture the perfect selfie is ideal for your social media cred, take a lesson from this 43-year-old Washington State guy, it’s not worth dying for.
According to the Washington Post, the deceased man’s girlfriend said that he was playing around with the gun all day long while snapping pics of the two of them, unloading and reloading it between photo sessions. Apparently, he forgot about one bullet left in the gun prior to pulling the trigger and shot himself in the head.
The Washington State man isn’t the first to kill himself with a gun while trying to take a selfie, as it’s been reported that people have done it more frequently than those attacked by sharks, leading to a reported 27 deaths around the world from such instances.
No one likes that person who takes a selfie to begin with, but if you’re going to do it, make sure to stay careful out there, bros.
