Is it really that important to capture the moment?
The Irish Medical Journal has released information on four cases in which people broke their arms taking selfies in the west of Ireland last summer.
- A 13-year-old girl who fell on her right hand while taking a selfie on a trampoline
- A 17-year-old girl who fell while taking a selfie running up steps
- A 27-year-old sportswoman who fell while taking a selfie with team-mates on a staircase
- A 40-year-old woman who fell on uneven ground while taking a selfie at a well-known tourist attraction
Ouch. Amazingly, all of the highlighted cases occurred during a one-week period. For the full Irish Medical Journal report click here.
