Man kills himself in gun-posing selfie
Everyday, we encounter weird people in mobile technology. From people holding up large tablet computers to their ears while taking a call, to some weirdo who thinks the magical hand-held box is more important than her life.
Sometimes these stories are funny but often times, they end up in tragedy, like the incident in China where two people lost their lives while trying to rescue a $350 smartphone.
Our next story is from Mexico where a man shot himself in the head while posing for a self portrait with a gun in his other hand.
21-year-old Oscar Otero Aguilar was drinking with friends and apparently drunk when he tried to take a picture of himself while juggling a loaded gun. The result — the loaded gun blew his damn brains out.
After he gunned himself, Oscar’s friends ran off to call the police who arrive the scene to meet a dead Oscar Otero Aguilar who killed himself with a selfie.
Manfredo Paez Paez, who was Oscar’s neighbor commented, “I heard a gunshot, and then I heard somebody screaming and realized somebody had been hurt. I called the police straight away and when they arrived they found that he was still alive”
However, the police said they met Mr. Aguilar’s body lifeless at the scene. Mexico’s Ministry of Public Security said the said deceased had planned to upload the picture on FaceBook, just like his other pictures which contained cars and alcoholics in their backgrounds.
