A woman died after she fell into a river while apparently taking selfies near a popular waterfall spot in India, reports said.
Nirupama Prajapati was in the Sundargarh district of Odisha near Kanakund, a well-known picnicking spot, with friends on Jan. 3 when she started taking pictures and selfies on ravine rocks alongside a fast-moving stream with a heavy current, according to video and India Today.
Video of the incident shows a man moving behind Prajapati and tripping as she snapped pictures, causing her to lose her balance and tumble into the water.
Prajapati’s family and the fire department searched the waters for 22 hours before finding her body in a stone cavity in a deep section of the river about a quarter of a mile from where she fell, the outlet reported.
