Warning over selfie-related injuries

The 13-year-old girl's x-ray

Four people in Galway fractured their wrists in one week last year while taking selfies.
The finding published in the Irish Medical Journal reveals that the injuries were incurred on the opposite wrist to that holding the phone.
This suggests the selfie takers were trying to save their phone when the fracture took place.
One of the four incidents involved a 13-year-old girl who collided with her friend while on a trampoline.
Researchers at the Department of Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery at UHG report that all the fractures were the same involving fractured wrists.
