Today in horrific news, a Polish couple vacationing in Portugal fell to their deaths while taking selfies on a cliff.

The couple and their children had been visiting cliffs at Cabo da Roca when the tragic incident occurred, WILX 10 reports. They fell from the cliff top into the Atlantic Ocean, where rescue workers were eventually able to retrieve their bodies.

The couple’s children are now reportedly in the care of Polish diplomats, and have visited with psychologists.

Sadly, this isn’t the first time a selfie has turned fatal. Earlier this month, we reported on the man in Mexico who died while taking a selfie with a gun.

Selfies may be the most popular genre of photography these days, but please, everyone — let’s be careful.
