"They heard me scream and they thought I was joking."
The harrowing story of 18-year-old Triston Bailey of Dallas, Texas is a warning for all.
Bailey was attempting to take selfies with his friends against the Dallas skyline this month. The best view of the Dalles skyline is from the Margaret McDermott Bridge, so the boys climbed the bridge. Moments later, Bailey fell off.
"I broke my pelvis, I had a fracture, a punctured lung, I broke my face a whole bunch and I had lacerated my spleen," Bailey said.
Obviously, he doesn't remember the fall but his friends will never forget it.

In recent research, it was found that over 250 people have died worldwide while trying to take selfies, and the number continues to climb seemingly every week.
Unsurprisingly, nearly 70 percent of them were men in their early 20s. At least now, Bailey won't be among them because he's sure to have learned his lesson.
