A newlywed couple and a relative lost their lives while attempting to take a ‘selfie’ by the riverside in Paripalli, Kollam District, Kerala. The unfortunate event unfolded during a joyous family gathering at the residence of their relative, Ansil, in Pallikkal.
Siddique, 29, and his wife Naubia, 25, had tied the knot just a week before the incident. As part of the post-wedding celebrations, they, along with Ansil’s family, visited the picturesque riverside near their relative’s home. After a delicious lunch, the newlyweds decided to capture a memorable moment by taking a ‘selfie’ while standing on a rock at the riverbank.
Little did they know that this seemingly innocent act would lead to such a devastating outcome. While attempting to click the perfect shot, Siddique and Naubia lost their footing and tragically fell into the river. As they struggled in the water, cries for help rang out, prompting Ansil to heroically jump into the river in an attempt to save them.
However, fate had a different plan, and Ansil too was swept away by the strong currents. The onlookers on the shore were left in shock, witnessing the horrifying scene unfold before their eyes.
In a swift response to the distressing news, the local authorities, including the police and fire brigade, rushed to the scene to begin a search and rescue operation. The rescue teams tirelessly scoured the river for any signs of the three individuals who had disappeared in the water. After an arduous search, Ansil’s lifeless body was recovered, adding to the somber atmosphere that had engulfed the area.
Despite their relentless efforts, the search for Siddique and Naubia had to be halted as night fell, posing further challenges to the rescue operation. The following morning, the rescue teams resumed their efforts with renewed determination. Eventually, the lifeless bodies of the newlyweds were discovered, wedged among a pile of rocks in the river.
With heavy hearts, the bodies of Siddique and Naubia were transported to the hospital for post-mortem examinations. As the news of the tragic accident spread, the entire community mourned the loss of three young lives, their future filled with dreams and aspirations now tragically cut short. The incident has sent shockwaves throughout the region and beyond, bringing to light the dangers associated with recklessness while taking ‘selfies’ in precarious locations. This tragedy serves as a poignant reminder of the need for caution and responsible behavior, especially when enjoying the beauty of nature and indulging in social media trends.
The local authorities have taken immediate action and initiated an investigation into the incident. The focus of the inquiry is not only on understanding the sequence of events that led to the accident but also on raising awareness about the risks involved in such activities. The incident highlights the importance of educating the public, particularly the youth, on the potential dangers of prioritizing pictures over safety. The couple’s untimely demise has left their families devastated, grieving the loss of their loved ones who had only recently begun their journey together as a married couple. The entire community has rallied together to provide support and comfort to the grieving families during this difficult time.
As the nation mourns the loss of three precious lives, this tragedy also serves as a clarion call for authorities to consider implementing safety measures in popular tourist spots and scenic locations. Signage and warnings about potential hazards could act as reminders to visitors to prioritize safety and avoid engaging in risky behavior.
Beyond that, the incident emphasizes the significance of responsible social media usage and the need to promote a culture that values life and safety above the pursuit of popularity or online validation. It is crucial to create awareness campaigns to educate individuals about the consequences of reckless behavior, especially in the pursuit of capturing the perfect ‘selfie.’
