"Selfies have been called everything from an artform to narcissistic and a sign
of a dysfunctional society.

They can also kill.

When people go to extreme lengths to take an image to share on social media –
perhaps in remote or picturesque locations – they can risk their lives.

So we need to move beyond describing selfies as a social phenomenon, fuelled by
the rise of smartphones and social media.

We need to treat dangerous selfies as the public health hazard they really
