Oh No! 7 Friends Drown After Their Boat Capsized While They Were Taking A Selfie (Photos)

Seven friends have drowned after their boat capsized while they gathered at one end for a selfie. The young men were filming for Facebook Live using a selfie stick and can be seen in the footage laughing and joking. But moments later, tragedy struck, as the men were so engrossed in playing up for the camera, that they didn't realise the were tipping over.

The men in their late teens and early twenties, had been at the Mangrul Lake in Kuhi Taluka for a picnic when they fell in the water on Sunday evening.

Chandra Bhadure, the senior Inspector from Kalmeshwar police station in Nagpur said: "The guys had got onto a small boat. "They were so engrossed in taking selfies and doing the live-streaming in Facebook that they forgot that all of them had come to one corner of the boat.

"That would capsize as a result of the imbalance caused by the uneven weight put on one side. "India has become the capital of selfie death in the world, but our people still continue to risk their life and limb for a selfie,” he said.

The dead men were identified as Harshal Adamne, 18, his 20-year-old brother Chetan Adamne, Govardhan Thote 18, Rahul Walode, 23, Ram Shivarkar, 24, Maqsood Sheikh, 27 and Abdul Sayeed, 21, all from Ashirwad Nagar in Nagpur city.

Their friend Atul Bhoya is still missing.
