This is the second case in weeks of lives lost because of a selfie obsession.

Last week, a selfie taken by a group of students from a Bengaluru college showed one of them drowning in the background in a large pond on the outskirts of the IT hub. But no one in the group realised it at the time.

17-year-old Vishwas G was part of a group of 25 cadets from the tiol College in Bengaluru who entered a 10 feet deep pond in the Ramagram district on September 24.

After taking the selfie, the group left the pond to visit a temple without noticing that Vishwas was missing. Later, a student scrolling through the photos they had taken earlier spotted Vishwas' head disappearing under water. The students then contacted the police who discovered the student's body in the pond.
