Portuguese dies in Panama when falling from 27th floor when taking a "selfie" - Current


According to police, the young Portuguese woman, Sandra Manuela da Costa Macedo, had a residence in Panama, but had only recently arrived in the country.

A Portuguese girl died Friday in Panama as she fell from a 27th-floor balcony when she tried to get a "selfie," local media reported on Monday, citing police.

According to police, the young Portuguese woman, Sandra Manuela da Costa Macedo, had a residence in Panama, but had only recently arrived in the country.

The accident occurred on Friday, around 10:00 local time (16:00 in Lisbon), in the El Cangrejo neighborhood of Panama City, police said.

The Panamanian press publishes a video of the accident, filmed by workers working in a nearby building and tried to warn the young woman of danger when they saw her sit on the balcony railing, according to the Panamanian daily La Critica.

A study released earlier this month concluded that between 2011 and 2017 at least 259 people died while trying to get a selfie in dangerous situations.
