A teenage girl has died after she was hit by a train as she posed for a
selfie just inches from a railway track. Horror
photos show the unnamed 19-year-old just seconds before the train hit
her after ignoring warnings from other tourists to move back. This
happened in the city of Foshan, South China’s Guangdong Province last
Saturday.

The
girl was reportedly attracted to a particular stretch of rail by a sea
of roses growing nearby, which also attracted hundreds of others but she
went too far by straying too close to the railway tracks until she was
finally struck by a freight train and paramedics on arrival pronounced
her dead.
Officials have banned people from taking photographs in that railway area.
 
While
selfies may never be listed as an official cause of death, there have
been an increasing number of selfie-related deaths in China in recent
years, including those of victims who tried to take selfies while on top
dangerous cliffs and waterfalls.
