Sometimes it better to simply buy the postcard with a picture of the place your visiting on it rather than risk your life trying to get that perfect vacation selfie.
One Texas grandmother learned that the hard way after a recent trip to Iceland turned very dangerous. Judith Streng was touring Iceland with her son last week when they saw a big chunk of ice shaped like a throne that had washed up on a beach. So she decided to sit on it while her son took a picture. The problem was that a giant wave rolled in, picked up the chunk of ice she was on and carried her out to sea.
Rescue crews had to be called in to help as the water was extremely cold and if she had fallen in, hypothermia would have set in fast. Luckily, someone on a boat saw it happen and picked her up.
Of course, her son caught the whole thing and took pictures. They posted those photos on Twitter and now grandma is going viral. Hey, that's ONE way to avoid that "nursing home conversation" with grandma......
