Xenia Ignatyeva, a 17-year-old from Saint Petersberg, fell to her death when she attempted to climb a railway bridge to take a selfie. According to her grandmother, police told her that Xenia "wanted to take a snap of herself at night, to give it the most dramatic effect and with the railway line as a backdrop." As she fell, Xenia tried to grab ahold of live cables and was electrocuted as her friend watched below. Her friend, Oksana Zhankova, was reportedly paralyzed with shock when paramedics found her crouching over her friend's body.
