In what could only be described as “bloodcurdling”, a teenage girl in India learns a valuable lesson on vanity as her hair is ripped clean off her scalp while attempting to take a selfie.
Such a horrible way to learn a lesson, glad to hear she is recovering.
RT has the full story:
A schoolgirl in India had her hair ripped from her scalp in a horrific accident when trying to take a selfie. The teen is understood to be recovering in hospital.
The horrific incident happened outside a college in the city of Baraut, more than 40 miles north of Delhi.
Footage captured the aftermath of the accident where the girl, believed to be around 16-years-old, was seen standing in obvious pain while bystanders attempted to free her, according to The Indian Express.
She reportedly was trying to take a selfie, but misjudged how close she was to the ferris wheel.
What a silly girl! Nearly killed for the sake of vanity.
