A man while trying to take a Facebook selfie with a loaded gun, according to Mexican news.




Mexican website Proseco said Oscar Otero Aguilar, 21, was drinking before taking the picture and stumbled when the gun fired. Omar Abner Campos Vives, a friend of Aguilar's, has been arrested while another friend is reportedly on the run.


One report says Aguilar was found dead by the time police arrived, while another claims a neighbor found him while he was alive, Pocket Lint reports. An autopsy is expected, and so far officials say the death appears to have been an accident, and that the photograph was likely going to be posted on Facebook.
