Selfie sticks are instruments by which one can take their own photo using a Bluetooth enabled image capturing device. The device can be anything from an iPhone, to a digital camera.
One can view people using a 3 foot stick with a camera at the end, standing in a huddle and merrily clicking pictures of themselves. It is also considered to be a nuisance nowadays with many places like the Vatican, The Wimbledon and other important places have banned them.
It is generally used by tourists who visit places of interests and teenagers who love documenting every moment of their daily life in images. The ease of use of this device has made it extremely popular.
But this Selfie stick saved the life of a teenage girl, who was caught in the riptide and was pulled into the water.
