In what was another case of 'selfie fever' claiming lives, a 17-year-old student on Tuesday drowned in a pond near Karnataka's Kanakapura, while his friends were busy taking group selfies.
The deceased has been identified as G Vishwas, a student of National College in Jayanagar who went for trekking with 21 students.
Reportedly, the incident came to light after Vishwas' friends started searching for him and came across a picture that captured the boy drowning, while they struck poses for the camera.
After informing the team coordinator, they went back to the pond and found his body floating.
