Woman Takes ‘World’s Worst Selfie’ As Suicidal Man Teeters On Edge of Brooklyn Bridge Behind Her

| by

As a man stood on the edge of the Brooklyn Bridge on the brink of committing suicide, one woman couldn’t help but take the “world’s worst selfie” as she posed for a photo with the dangerous scene behind her.

The man was eventually rescued by police officers, reports The Blaze.

But the mystery woman’s tasteless photo still landed her on the front page of the New York Post and on several news websites on Wednesday.

The Post reports:

“With scores of onlookers watching the dramatic 10 a.m. rescue by cops, the crass camerawoman turned her back to the scene, angled her phone toward the bridge and snapped a shot. When approached by The Post afterward, she suddenly became camera-shy.”

When asked for her name, the woman responded, “I’d rather not.”

Previous titleholders of “world’s worst selfie” are the “funeral selfie,” and the selfie of a woman posing with her grandmother’s ashes.
