A couple has died after falling from cliffs in Portugal while taking pictures of themselves on Sunday, according to investigators.
The man and woman reportedly went past a barrier set up to keep people off the cliff edge at Cabo de Roca, a popular coasta tourist destination near Lisbon.

The couple’s children, aged 5 and 6, were with them and are now in the custody of Polish diplomats.
This is, sadly, not the first time a selfie has turned deadly. Last week a man in Mexico was taking a selfie when he accidentally shot himself in the head.
