- Researchers (Ironically) Believe Phones Could Save People From Selfie Deaths
- Firefighters Under Attack After Taking Selfie in Front of Fatal House Fire
Authorities in Kuznetsy village, Russia are attempting to identify a woman who was electrocuted to death after she climbed onto a power transformer to try and get a selfie.
The mini substation was set aflame with the woman's body. Witnesses believe the woman was between 18- and 24-years-old.
"Most likely she decided that she wouldn't touch anything and nothing bad would happen," a witness named Olga said.
"But it is enough only to climb on the transformer structure to get a severe electric shock."
Editor's Tip: Want to create better portraits simply and easily? Use a reflector! Reflectors bounce light onto the subject and help fill in shadows for more even, more flattering light. You can buy reflectors in a 5-in-1 kit that has a gold reflector, which warms up the light and a silver reflector, which bounces the most light onto the subject, making it more intense. These kits also include a white reflector, which bounces very soft and subtle light onto the subject, a translucent diffuser, which softens light and minimizes shadows, and a black anti-reflector, which absorbs light and enhances shadows.

The unidentified woman's phone was found on the scene.
Kuznetsky village is located about 50 miles from Moscow, and authorities believe the woman was visiting from there.
