Sometimes a Great Selfie Involves a Little Risk
A young woman suffered injuries and was rushed to a hospital after falling from a bridge while taking selfies, according to police in California. The Placer County Sheriff's Office said that the woman, who was not identified, and a group of her friends from the Sacramento area, were walking on the girders underneath the Foresthill Bridge. The woman took a selfie and fell from the girders, landing on the trail approximately 60 feet below. She was rushed to the Sutter Roseville Medical Center, where she is being treated for broken bones. She is expected to survive. "The walkways under the Foresthill Bridge are closed for the protection of our residents and our community. Any trespassers found on the bridge will be cited. Be safe and tour the bridge from the sidewalks above. This young lady is very lucky to be alive and the consequences could have been worse for her, her friends and her family," a spokesperson for the The Placer County Sheriff's Office said.
