Proto-selfie deathers from the 80's.
A newly married woman and three of her family drowned in a reservoir after trying to take a selfie, said police in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
The dead were among a group of six who held hands and stood in waist deep water near Pambar dam before one of them slipped, pulling the others.
The woman's husband was able to save his sister but the others drowned.
India has the highest number of recorded selfie deaths in the world.
India accounted for about half of the 259 reported fatalities between 2011 and 2017, according to a study by the US National Library of Medicine. It was followed by Russia, the US and Pakistan.
In Tamil Nadu on Sunday, the young married couple, from Bargur in Krishnagiri, were visiting relatives in Uthangarai along with the bridegroom's sister, The Hindu newspaper reported.
The three entered the water together with three teenage siblings when one of them, a boy aged 14, slipped and dragged his two sisters aged 18 and 19 with him, along with the newly married woman and the bridegroom's sister.
The sister was pulled to safety by her brother but the other four disappeared under the water. Police said the bodies were later recovered and that post-mortem examinations would be carried out.
It was the latest in a series of tragedies linked to selfies in India. Experts have warned that people are taking unnecessary risks to impress their family and friends on social media.
In Haryana state in May, three teenagers taking selfies on a railway track jumped out of the way when they saw a train approaching, only to be killed by another train coming in the other direction.
In 2017, the Indian state of Karnataka launched a campaign to warn people that "selfies can kill" after the deaths of four students.
The same year, a man died in Odisha when an elephant he was taking a selfie alongside wrapped its trunk around him and crushed him.
The tower on Shaikh Zayed Road from where a 16-year-old girl plunged to her death while she was trying to take selfie on Saturday is a popular vantage point from where photographers and bloggers take pictures of the Burj Khalifa, residents told Gulf News on Sunday.
The Afghan teenager is believed to have been taking a selfie from the balcony of her parents’ 17th floor apartment with the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower, in the backdrop when she lost her balance on a chair and came crashing down the tower.
A holidaymaker slipped and fell to his death while trying to take a selfie at a beauty spot where he allegedly ignored warning signs.
Bastien Palmier, 30, and a friend were visiting a 260ft high waterfall on the island of Koh Samui in Thailand when he tragically died on Thursday morning.
The friend said the French tourist ignored warning signs and clambered over a rope to venture onto the edge of the Na Mueang 2 waterfall, the same place where a Spanish holidaymaker died after posing for photos in July.
Mr Palmier was standing near the waterfall's cliff edge while taking a selfie or trying to get into position for a selfie when he slipped and fell to his death onto sharp, wet rocks and into the pool below.
The family of a Chinese university student who fell to her death while taking a selfie is blaming the management of one of China’s most famous mountains.
The student, surnamed Deng, died at the end of October after falling from Huashan, known for its steep cliffs and terrifying hiking trails, in the northwestern province of Shaanxi.
Her family claims the barrier on the mountain was inadequate, while the management of Huashan National Park said the student was an adult who was responsible for her actions, according to a report on Monday by video website Pear Video.
Deng had been sharing selfies of her progress on the mountain with her classmates in chat groups until her sudden disappearance, the report said. Her university, in the central province of Hunan, alerted the police a day later after failing to contact her, and also informed her family that she was missing.
Tragedy as British backpacker, 21, plunges to her death at notorious cliff-top selfie spot in Australia after attending nearby party
A young British model who fell to her death from a cliff at a popular selfie spot in Sydney has been mourned by shocked friends.
Madalyn Davis, 21, arrived in Australia late last year from Lincoln, England, and was planning on starting a new life there before her death on Sunday morning.
The young tourist was at a party in Vaucluse on Saturday night and went to the nearby 30-metre (100ft) Diamond Bay cliffs with seven friends about 6.30am.
They are believed to have climbed over a fence to sit on the edge of the cliff to watch the sunrise before she fell.
CCTV from early on Sunday morning showed a person looking over the edge of the cliffs
The Diamond Bay cliffs are a notorious magnet for tourists taking Instagram shots dangerously close to the edge, with a 27-year-old woman falling in August.
Ms Davis was mourned in dozens of tributes by shattered friends online, remembered as a 'free spirit' who was 'beautiful inside and out'.
Her mother Rebecca Smith desperately tried to get hold of her on Sunday afternoon and begged friends to help track her down.
'Anyone seen Maddie? Not been able to get hold of her please get in touch if you were out with her last night,' she posted online.
However, by Monday morning her family confirmed Ms Davis had died and thanked her friends for their kind words.
'Thank you for all your beautiful condolences for Madalyn Davis and her family - it is an absolute tragedy to which nothing has been confirmed,' another family member wrote.
A friend in Newcastle, NSW, said he was planning a trip to Sydney to visit Ms Davis and her friends, but now it was too late.
'I'm utterly destroyed... I would never have thought it would happen. She has such a gorgeous soul,' he wrote.
Ms Davis on December 14 told her friends she was having the 'best time' travelling and had no plans to return to Britain.
'Can't believe I've been travelling for a whole month now!' she wrote next to a photo of her at the Full Moon Party in Thailand in November.
'Not looked back at my old life once (miss my job though) and I am super excited for my future abroad,' she wrote.
Ms Davis was supporting her stay in Australia by styling eyelashes for $50 a set, and occasional modelling work.
NSW Police said emergency services were called to Diamond Bay Reserve after reports a woman had fallen off a cliff.
They commenced an air and water search and retrieved her body about 10.30am on Saturday.
