In yet another example of how selfies are killing our generation, three youths were crushed by a passenger train while posing for a quick picture on railway tracks. Identified as Sunny, Chaman, and Kishan, they came under the train near Panipat park in Chandigarh. A fourth person, identified as Dinesh, had a narrow escape from death. Reports suggested the young men had come to the city to attend the wedding of a relative. Eyewitnesses said they were taking photographs of each other and roaming on the railway track for around half an hour and taking selfies. Even when they saw the train approaching, they continued taking pictures. While Dinesh managed to jump to safety when he noticed the danger, the other three jumped to their left and were crushed under the train.
