    Tourists plunge 100 feet to their death while taking selfie

    A British woman and Australian man have died after falling 100 feet off a beach wall in Portugal while taking a selfie.

    The man, who was in his 40s, and the woman in her 30s were apparently taking a picture on top of a wall that overlooks Pescadores beach in Ericeira when they plunged to their deaths between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m.

    Looks like another Mobil phone death. fell to their death reaching for a phone.

    There should be a background check and training to see that they know these phones are dangerous.
    Too many texting. Taking porn photos, getting into dangerous positions for selfies.

    Common sense rules for smartphones should, at a minimum, include a background check (since so many people to their deaths stepping back toward the precipice), and a national registry of people with no common sense who insist on carrying a smartphone. There might possibly be a move to outlaw smartphones that have Facetime app installed.

    More people die from cell phones than AR-15's.

    Something that doesn't get enough attention is; how will those radio waves effect your brain long term? It's no different than holding a radio, or wifi if you have a smart phone, to your head for the entire day.

    Could there be a link between excessive cell phone usage, and the seemingly pandemic rise in autism today?
