Jumping to Death Well

Another one of the most dangerous photographs is the one taken by Rinaldo Danza. Although it’s not a selfie, the story is very surprising, this Filipino councilman was celebrating New Year’s Eve in 2011 with his family at one point in the night, and he took a photograph of his family without realizing that just then his killer was about to kill him.

Unfortunately, that day the wind was blowing very strong and they both ended up losing their grip. They both fell down off the cliff under the stunned gaze of their two children who were waiting for them to finish taking the selfie.
