Friends watch as man falls to his death taking selfie at tourist hot spot

NY Post reports friends watched on in horror as a man plunged to his death after attempting to take a selfie at a popular Australian tourist site.
The international student, said to be in his 20s, was “mucking around” with his friends when he fell 130-feet onto rocks at Western Australia’s notorious tourist hot spot, The Gap. He was then swept out to sea.

“We just can’t explain, he was one of our friends,” he said.
