Man in Sukkur Falls to His Death While Taking a Selfie

The quest for a great picture sometimes leads to a tragic end, as is the case with a man in Sukkur, who fell into river Indus while trying to take a selfie on a bridge.

Asif Masih, a resident of Christian Colony was strolling at night on the Lansdowne bridge with his wife. He fell from the side while trying to take a selfie.

Rescue operations were unsuccessful even after a 10 hour long search. The rescue workers were hampered by the dense fog and cold.

The Lansdowne bridge is an engineering marvel of the 19th century. It was considered the largest cantilever bridge in the world when it was constructed (1889).
