Love for a selfie puts life at risk

Surathkal: A youth from KR Puram Bengaluru climbed a rock to click a selfie at Surathkal Beach had a lucky escape when the tides got rough on Monday.

A group of seven from Bengaluru was in the town over the long weekend and made rounds to a few prominent places around the city. When the group reached Surathkal Lighthouse Beach, the two, Bharat and his friend climbed up a rock to click selfie's. When his friend gown down the rock and reached the shore safely Bharat feared to make a move.

Later seven lifeguards reached the spot and guided Bharat to reach the shore.

Mangaluru Tahasildar Mahadevappa visited the place later and appreciated the Home Guard swimmers for help rendered.

However, the warning signs have been installed across the coast but most of the visitors tend to ignore the signs.
