- Nightclub's Appalling List of Do's and Don'ts for Their Photographers Leaked
A millennial couple who were taking photos of themselves in Yosemite last October plunged 800 feet to their deaths. Now, the Maricopa County Coroner says they had been drinking.
The couple, who ran the Holidays and Happily Ever Afters Instagram up until their deaths, even posted a warning to people in search of a daredevil selfie.

CHASING SUNSETS or CHASING LIKES ??? 😛 ... Sooo today on #socialmediabadasstribe we are talking about limits of #doitforthegram.😶Yeah sure it can be limitless but guys, we reaaaallly need to have boundaries(this is handy as life lessons too but we will revisit that later😉) A lot of us including yours truly is a fan of daredevilry attempts of standing at the edge of cliffs ⛰and skyscrapers🌆, but did you know that wind gusts can be FATAL??? ☠️ Is our life just worth one photo? ... When we squirm at another selfie attempt gone south 😱 from a skyscraper, let’s remember to save that in our core memory 🧠 and not the memory dump 🛢(I am still on the Inside Out 🎬 train y'all 😬) Same applies when we get our knickers in a twist and hog a spot till we get the perfect shot🙄 I know I know, I am guilty as charged for all of this 🤦♀️ and if I didn’t have Mr. Two Goody Shoes, Vishnu 🤭 with me, I am not even sure if I would have written this post. ... Let us all try to be responsible digital citizens and use our “numbers” to be transparent and honest, shall we?🤗 None of us is perfect and the more we accept it and share our flaws as much as our wins, we are one step closer to creating a sane social media without the scary brouhahas.💕✨ ... Still there?👀 Woohoo, a backflip is in order, or wait maybe a pizza? 🍕 What about a unicorn ice-cream 🦄 🍦 with some Disney-approved cotton candy 🍭🍬 and pixie dust infused sprinkles 🧚♀️ if…..IF you could tell me the one time you were effin’ proud of being candid and real AF in social media? 😎 ...

In it, Meenakshi Moorthy, 30 at time of death, said she loves to chase dangerous shots but questions, "Is our life worth just one photo?"
Apparently, the answer is yes.
While the MCSO coroner could not conclude how much alcohol the couple had consumed, it was clear they had been drinking.
It is still unknown exactly how they fell.

The couple's Instagram is filled with lots of shots on cliffs, and videos of the couple skydiving and hot air ballooning.
While it seemed Meenakshi was the true daredevil between the couple (she said so multiple times in her posts and only posted the selfie warning because her husband was more cautious), they both went skydiving on an anniversary in 2017. You can watch that video here.

I believe I can flyyy 🎶 I believe I can touch the skyyyy 🌥 ... Aaaand touch the sky I did from an effin’ 18000 ft thanks to the unconditional love-ninja in my life, Vishnu ❤️, who literally took this year’s anniversary surprise a notch “higher” than last year’s hot air ballooning adventure 🎈, by gifting this adrenaline junkie with one of the highest tandem skydives in the world! 🤘 ... Hurling myself out of a perfectly functioning airplane was a dream forever for this pink-haired 💕daredevil and when it fiiiiinalllly turned into reality, it was a sensory overload of exhilaration and exultation to say the least! Between hyperventilating from overexcitement and sucking in the supplemental oxygen to get to 18000 ft, I barely noticed that suddenly I am sitting with my legs dangling out of the plane ✈️ at 18k feet with views to ahem, “die” for 😉 ... As the beaming ocean vistas 🌊 beckoned me from far below, I realized that the wind whipping past whisked my breath away from my airways, deafened my eardrums and sent me into a euphoric disarray of emotions while we plummeted towards what eerily looks like Google Earth Maps in real life 😄 ... And then it was time to PARTY in the sky! 🎉🎊🎉WoooHooo! Twists 'n' turns, screams 'n' spins ensued 🤘The 90sec freefall, aaaaah those 90 seconds of intoxicating freedom how I wish I could describe THAT! 🖋I am a wishful wordsmith, but there are times I just keep writing and deleting unable to put the zilliony emotions I experience to words, and yet those are simply some of the most magical moments in my life ✨✨✨(and every single time they have involved Vishnu in some way or the other 💕) Sooo since they say a picture speaks a 1000 words, here's a teeny video clip from my skydiving adventure which I hope will make up for my want of words🤗 • • • #skydiving #skydivesantabarbara #ibelieveicanfly #iloveskydiving #adrenalinerush #tandemskydive #freefalling #adventuretravel #18000ft #bucketlist #freefall #skydive #roadtrippers #roadtripusa #globalstorybook #girlgetters #radgirlslife #traveladdicts #femaletravelbloggers #skydivinggram #traveltales #exploreaholic #pinkhairdontcare #skydivegram #skydiving_everyday @skydive_gram
