Western society has now reached the point where people in grave danger are now more concerned about getting the perfect selfie than they are about survival.
Such was the case on Sunday, when a Canadian woman taking a selfie from her car as it sank through the ice in the Rideau River in Ontario.

The woman, who was driving through Manotick, somehow found herself driving along the frozen river.
Eventually, her car’s weight overburdened the ice and the vehicle fell through.
“This portion of the river has thin ice compared to other areas of the river,” police said in a news release. “Ice conditions at this time of the year can be unpredictable. The Ottawa Police Service would like to remind residents to stay off the ice and remember ‘No Ice is Safe Ice.’ ”
As she floated down river, she stopped to take a selfie.

According to the National Post, emergency services eventually rescued her with the aid of kayaks, and was charged with dangerous driving.
