Instagram couple plummet to their death while taking a selfie
Doing it for the 'gram isn't worth it sometimes
A young travel couple who shared their adventures via Instagram for their 18.7 thousand followers to see tragically fell to their death on October 26 at Yosemite National Park.
The duo, who were known on the photo-sharing platform as @holidaysandhappilyeverafters, were visiting the park which is known for its impressive granite cliffs.
The pair stopped for a selfie at Taft Point, a popular viewpoint for visitors. Their bodies were discovered by park rangers once other tourists spotted a camera and tripod on the ledge of the cliff. A helicopter search eventually found the pair 800 ft down.
Ironically, the couple had recently posted about the dangers of ledge selfies and photos:

When we squirm at another selfie attempt gone south ???? from a skyscraper, let’s remember to save that in our core memory ???? and not the memory dump ????(I am still on the Inside Out ???? train y'all ????) Same applies when we get our knickers in a twist and hog a spot till we get the perfect shot???? I know I know, I am guilty as charged for all of this ????♀️ and if I didn’t have Mr. Two Goody Shoes, Vishnu ???? with me, I am not even sure if I would have written this post. ... Let us all try to be responsible digital citizens and use our “numbers” to be transparent and honest, shall we????? None of us is perfect and the more we accept it and share our flaws as much as our wins, we are one step closer to creating a sane social media without the scary brouhahas.????✨ ... Still there????? Woohoo, a backflip is in order, or wait maybe a pizza? ???? What about a unicorn ice-cream ???? ???? with some Disney-approved cotton candy ???????? and pixie dust infused sprinkles ????♀️ if…..IF you could tell me the one time you were effin’ proud of being candid and real AF in social media? ???? ...
