Selfies Are Becoming Dangerous!!!!!!
Last week there was an American tourist who fell into the crater of Mount Vesuvius in Italy. The mountain peaks at 4,190 feet. The crater is 1,476 feet wide and 984 feet deep. NBC NEWS identified the man from Baltimore named Philip Carroll. Selfies are becoming dangerous and effecting people’s life. Apparently, Carroll fell into the carter after he took a selfie on top of the mountain. This was not the smartest move. Carroll and his family hiked a forbidden trail and found themselves on the crater’s edge and fell in trying to take a selfie. This was a dumb move.
This is a popular volcano. According to NBC News, the volcano destroyed the Roman city of Pompeii “and blanketing it with ash in A.D. 79.” Carroll, who is 23 years old, survived the fall but put his life in danger over a selfie. Carroll reached the peak which is over 4,000 feet. Was the selfie that important? Carroll stopped to take a selfie and his phone fell into the crater. He tried to grab it and fell. Can you imagine falling into a crater that was that high? The selfie hasn’t been posted yet. I hope the image was amazing. He was lucky. Carroll only had scratches and cuts from the fall. The best part of this story was Carrol was taken into custody by local police. I commend those police officers. Carrol probably had to pay fines but the situation could have been worse and he could face charges. The charges should not be for trespassing but for being a dumb a$$! People who want to take an exotic selfie to impress their social media friends need therapy. The volcano is considered active. The last eruption was in 1944. He could have fell in and the volcano erupted.
