Capturing precious moments are very important, and people go to great lengths to take lovely photos of themselves, so they can post on social media and get numerous likes among other reasons.
However, in a bid to take good photos, it has ended tragically for some, leading to their deaths.
According to a report, taking selfies has led to more than 250 deaths since 2011, and that does not seem ready to stop anytime soon.
The latest to add to these unfortunate deaths is a 27-year-old woman from Panama.
YEN.com.gh gathered that the 27-year-old woman identified as Sandra Manuela Da Costa Macedo, fell to her death from the 27th floor of a building while trying to take a selfie.
The mother of two had been sitting on the railing of the balcony when she tumbled backwards and fell. It has been said that perhaps strong winds pushed her back leading to her fall.
Sandra is also said to be a teacher.

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a pastor's attempt to save his church's offering has ended in disaster as he got drowned in a flood caused by a heavy downpour.
All the money accrued from the offering taken was stored in the church's offertory bowl and was supposed to be taken to the bank on Friday.
The pastor, Reverend Isaac Assiamah organised a mega crusade on Wednesday and Thursday at Apapam, a town in Kyebi in the Eastern Region.
However, on Thursday night, it rained so heavily that the whole town got flooded.
In an attempt to rescue the offertory bowl, the pastor was reported to have been drowned in the flood.
