Woman Takes Selfie During Man’s Suicide Attempt

When a woman in New York noticed a man attempting to commit suicide by jumping off the notorious Brooklyn Bridge, she decided to capture a selfie to document the moment.

The unnamed woman reportedly took the photo of herself while cops in the background were attempting to talk the man down from jumping. As if becoming a target of criticism for simply posting this photo on her Instagram wasn’t enough, the New York Post featured the woman on the front page with the headline “SELFIE-ISH!”

This is definitely a new low–much worse than people taking selfies at funerals.

According to New York Magazine, when asked for her name, she responded “I’d rather not.”


We’ve never really been fans of or fully understood the point of selfies. Either way, this was enough to convince us that society may for sure be doomed.
