Xenia Ignatyeva

Starting our list of 25 heart-breaking deaths while taking selfies at number 25 is Russian teenager Xenia Ignatyeva. This daredevil succumbed to death while posing on the edge of a high-end building. As per reports, she mishandled the selfie stick which led to her losing her balance and falling down from a height of two hundred feet. What is even more surprising is that she died before hitting the ground as she was electrocuted through the live wires on her way down.

David Gonzalez Lopez



Next up at number 24 is 23-year-old David Gonzalez Lopez. What went wrong for this man was that he stood in front of what is regarded as one of the mightiest beasts on the planet a raging bull. While participating in a festival in Villaseca de la Sagra in Spain, Lopez tried to take a selfie with a raging bull, and to nobody's surprise, he was brutally crushed to death. And you can't even blame the bull here.

Mr. Chen



At number 21 on our list comes a Chinese man, who is being referred to as Mr. Chen. Found dead at the bottom of a ravine near a waterfall in Zhejiang in Eastern China in 2015, his body was accompanied with a mobile phone and a selfie stick. It has been speculated from the photographs found in his phone that he lost his footing and slipped down to his death while taking a selfie.

The American Man



Grabbing the 7thspot on the list is a 43-year-old American man who met his demise while taking a selfie with a gun. What he thought to be an empty gun was actually a loaded gun. His girlfriend who was with him told that they were taking selfies all day with that gun. Before taking photos, the man unloaded the gun every time and replaced them after they were done. But on the last attempt, he forgot to take out one bullet from the gun, which proved to be fatal for him.

Two Russian Men



At number 6 comes two Russian men who accidently blew each other out as they attempted to take a selfie of themselves with a hand grenade whose pin was pulled out. Both of them perished and the only thing that remained of the blast was the mobile phone.

Chezka Agas



Number 5 on our list of 25 heart-breaking deaths while taking selfies belongs to an 18-year-old Filipino woman Chezka Agas. As she celebrated a friend's birthday in a beach, she posed for a selfie along with her friends. The civil engineer student was caught off-guard when a huge wave struck her and her friends. She was immediately hospitalised but was declared dead by drowning. The incident took place in Barangay Masikil in front of the famous Bangui windmills.

The Pilot

When seven of them got into a boat and started clicking pictures, they didn't realize that all of them were standing on one side of the boat, and it soon went haywire and the boat capsized, drowning all of them. The three remaining friends soon informed everyone, although the damage was already done. The seven people who died were aged between 18 to 27.
