The number of photo or selfie tragedies increase every year while the age of the victims is lower. Mountains and lookouts are among such dangerous places.

There are no current statistics about locations in Slovakia, but following the hashtag #tomasovskyvyhlad (Tomášovský Výhľad in Slovenský Raj) will give a certain answer.

There are more than 7,000 such photos on Instagram, say the creators of the new Slovak film Kto Je Ďalší (Who Will Be Next?), about the extreme photography from high places and the consequences.

“Do not take photos at the edge of a rock, you can lose your balance, stumble or step into an empty space,” said Ivan Krajčír, director of regional centre Slovenský Raj, Bukovské Vrchy.
