A man survived a 50-foot drop after slipping down a waterfall – because he tried to take a selfie on the edge.

The youth broke his pelvis in the terrifying plunge, and is recovering in hospital.

He had been visiting his friends at the waterfall In Gariaband District in northern India.

But he slipped on the wet stone – and narrowly avoided seriously injuring another man standing at the bottom of the waterfall.

Local police have urged people to avoid taking life-threatening selfies.
