A "selfie" takes the life of a young Brazilian after falling from a 30-meter-high waterfall

Wagner Schmidt Alves, a 27-year-old Brazilian, died last Sunday when he fell from a 30-meter-high waterfall located in Pico do Marumbi State Park, in the Brazilian state of Paraná, according to the Brazilian newspaper, Bolso.

"He walked with his friends and was the first to climb the hill, and as soon as he got there, he climbed a rock to take a selfie, but he slipped and fell," said Eduarda Cowany, the victim's friend.

The newspaper pointed out that a doctor was visiting the place and found the young man and gave him first aid, but he could not do anything to save his life, and his body was transferred to the Medical Legal Institute in Paranagua.

It is worth noting that Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro was discharged from hospital on Sunday, according to the latest medical report, a day after his doctors declared that his condition was "really good."

The 66-year-old president was taken to a hospital in Sao Paulo last Wednesday due to a partial intestinal obstruction, and he said the cause of his condition was that he was stabbed in 2018, while on an election campaign trail.
