A man fell to his death from a cliff after trying to pose for a picture on his birthday.

According to a report by Asian Age, the deceased, Halil Dag, was taken to a local hospital by onlookers after his 164-foot fall from the cliff.

A video of the incident was caught on camera by a person accompanying Dag, and was posted on Facebook, Sunday.

In the video, Dag can be seen jumping from a rock on a higher plane onto the cliff. He lands on the edge of the cliff but loses balance and tumbles down. The ground on which Dag landed, after he jumped, was slightly slanted downwards, which could have led to him losing his balance.

It can also be seen in the video that Dag was trying to latch on to something to stop his fall, but in vain. The person who filmed the whole incident was then seen running for Dag with the camera still on.

According to the report, Dag lost his balance after he jumped over a barbed fence wire in order to pose for a picture on top of the Urfa Castle in Southern Turkey.

Dag suffered a brutal fall and crashed into the ground near a Kurdish restaurant after rolling down the cliff. He was immediately taken to Balıklıgöl State Hospital where he was admitted in a serious condition and was declared dead shortly, Asian Age reported.

Dag’s body was given to his family and he was buried at a local cemetery named Abdurrahman Dede Cemetary.

According to a study named “Me, Myself and My Killfie: Characterizing and Preventing Selfie Deaths” conducted by researchers from Carnegie Melon University in Pittsburgh and Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology, New Delhi, India, it was discovered serious injuries and deaths related to taking selfies were on the rise between March 2014 to September 2016.

A January 2017 report by Forbes said more than 73 people died while taking photos of themselves in extreme conditions in the first eight months of 2016, which was more than the 39 deaths in 2015 and 15 in 2014. India recorded the highest number of selfie-related deaths with 76. The United States recorded only eight.
