A teenager in Thrissur who posed before an oncoming train to click an adventurous photo of himself and upload it on Facebook was fatally run over Wednesday. According to Nedupuzha police, 16-year-old Edwin was hit by a train when he was sitting on the track and posing for a photograph. The victim was unable to move out of the way in time.
He was accompanied by his younger brother and a friend. Police said the three were celebrating Edwin’s Class 10 results. Edwin succumbed in the hospital Wednesday.
In another incident, a 32-year-old in Kayamkulam, Alappuzha, lost his life while trying to depict a suicide scene for the camera. He, too, wanted to post it on Facebook.

Police said Abilash Sashi, who worked in private firm, was found hanging from a ceiling fan at his house Wednesday. A camera-enabled mobile phone was placed in the room to capture his “prank”.
“We found that Sashi has a history of enacting suicide attempts and uploading the visuals on Facebook. In the past, he had cut his vein and posted photographs of his bleeding hands. He had no reason to commit suicide. Prima facie, it appears the rope he used to enact the suicide scene accidentally got tight around his neck,” said SHO T Rajappan.
