Woman falls off California's highest bridge while taking selfie
Police in a California county have a warning for camera-toting thrill seekers: "You can lose your life and none of that is worth a selfie!", CNN says.
The message was posted on the Placer County Sheriff's Office Facebook page after a woman fell 60 feet off the Foresthill Bridge on Tuesday. The 730-foot-tall bridge is the highest in California and one of the highest in the United States.
The Sheriff's Office said the unidentified woman from Sacramento and a group of friends were walking on the bridge's girders when she "attempted to take a selfie and fell. Landing on a trail below."
The woman had to be airlifted to a nearby hospital. Paul Goncharuk, a friend, told that "she was knocked unconscious, suffered a deep gash to her arm and fractured bones that will require surgery."
