Chikkamagaluru: Selfie attempt at waterfalls proves fatal for two tourists


Daijiworld Media Network - Chikkamagaluru

Chikkamagaluru, Jul 18: Two men died while trying to take a selfie at Alekan waterfalls in Charmady Ghat here on Monday July 18.

Hanumanthappa (34) and Nagabhushan (38), both from Chitradurga district, fell to their deaths.

The two, who had set out on a tour along with some others, visited Subramanya, Dharmasthala and surrounding places. Thereafter, they went to Alekan waterfalls. While trying to take a selfie, they both slipped and fell into the water, sources said.

Basavaraj, Nagesh and Honnesh had accompanied them to the falls.

The bodies were later retrieved.

It may be recalled that a few months ago, a youth from Mudigere had lost his life at this very spot while trying to take a selfie. In another incident two months ago, a youth had sustained injuries.

    Killer selfie. So many incidents and people never learn.
    Another killer game is ‘Android Pokémon Go'. Already caused in bad accidents with motorists who involve in playing the game while drying.

    This is 3rd or 4th accident and many innocent lives have lost. You will not find "selfie" danger sign board during Nidramayya's time . You have to wait for Amul baby to grow up.
