A 17-year old boy was found dead in a small water body near Devanahalli. This is the sixth selfie death reported in and around Bengaluru.

The boy had gone out with six of his friends to Nandi Hills on their bikes. On their way back, the friends stopped at a water body near Maaligenahalli in Devanahalli and started taking selfies. One of the boys slipped and fell into the tank.

Before he could be brought out f the tank, he had breathed his last. More details on the boy and the tragic incident are awaited.

Despite similar incidents being reported in the media and social media, it is sad that youths still do not think twice before posing for selfies in front of water bodies and dangerous places.
