A newly married woman and three of her family drowned in a reservoir after trying to take a selfie in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu.

BBC News reports the dead were among a group of six who held hands and stood in waist-deep water near the dam before one of them slipped, pulling the others.

The woman's husband was able to save his sister but the others drowned.

India has the highest number of recorded selfie deaths in the world.
