In an incident reported from the State capital, a teenage girl nearly got herself into trouble in search of a cool selfie who fell into the Upper Lake while clicking selfie near the statue of Raja Bhoj.

It’s a clear indication of threats which people overlook, only for a perfect click. The girl had fallen into the Upper Lake on Saturday afternoon but was rescued with the help of divers and locals present at the spot. The incident surfaced when the video of that girl went viral on social media on Monday.

The 17-year-old minor identified as Shivangi Sharma had come with her friends to the spot for excursion.
However, while posing for the selfie at the railing she lost her balance and fell into the water. The water was not that deep and she managed to stand in it and the locals pulled her up with the help of a rope which the girl had tied at her waist.

The depth of water near the spot has claimed several lives in the past and it was a chance that she fell away from it.
