The selfie-obsessed Romanian teen who burst into flames after touching a live wire

In May 2015, a Romanian teenager burst into flames after accidentally touching a live wire while attempting to take the "ultimate selfie" on the roof of a train.

Anna Ursu,18, and a friend went to a train station in the town of Iasi to take a "special selfie" that she intended to post on Facebook. As she lay on top of a train and stuck one of her legs in the air, an electrical field surrounding the overhead cables sent 27,000 volts zapping through her body, causing her to burst into flames.

Despite the best efforts of a passer-by to save her, the 18-year-old later died in a hospital with burns to 50 per cent of her body.

The teen who plunged 30ft to her death after trying to take a selfie on top of a railway bridge

A 17-year-old girl plunged 30 feet to her death as she climbed onto a railway bridge to take a selfie. Xenia Ignatyeva was a month short of her 18th birthday when she fell and was hit by 1,500 volts as she was electrocuted when she tried to grab live wires.

Xenia was a keen amateur photographer, and her big passion had been taking pictures of herself with a camera she bought at the end of 2013 after a summer job. But her life was cut short when she decided that the top of the rail bridge in Krasnogvardeysky, in the Russian city of Saint Petersburg, would make a great location for one of her pictures.

Police, alerted by an anonymous call saying children had been playing on the bridge, believe the teen may have been alive for a short while after she hit the ground.
