(Newser) – A teenager is dead after she was electrocuted while taking selfies atop a parked train in northeast Romania. Anna Ursu, 18, was hospitalized in the city of Iasi on Friday with severe burns after she apparently touched a high-voltage wire above the train. She died on Sunday. "Her whole body was burned," says a hospital spokesperson. A friend also was hospitalized with slight injuries. (It's not the first fatality involving selfies and trains.)
