More people die trying to strike the perfect pose for a selfie than a shark attack, according to a new survey. The survey from online phone case seller Case24.com found that people are five times more likely to die trying to take a selfie than in a shark attack, U.K. magazine Travolution.com reported. So-called “selficides” reportedly account for an average of 43 deaths a year. The survey looked at responses from 999 women and 1,024 men and found that 41% of respondents have risked their safety for a photo with 11% admitting they were injured while taking a selfie.
