Seven people drowned in India after an attempt to take a group selfie went wrong, police have said.
According to police in Kanpur district in Uttar Pradesh, the group had gone to swim in the river Ganga when one decided to take a selfie.
While taking it, he lost balance and was swept away by the current.
‘The six friends accompanying him drowned one after another in a bid to rescue others,’ said a police official.
Authorities earlier this year declared 16 ‘no-selfie’ zones around Mumbai following the accidental deaths of several people trying to take their own pictures.
These sites included popular spots including Bandra Bandstand and Marine Drive.
