Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, August 13, 2014

A Polish couple plunged to their death while trying to take a selfie with their kids at the edge of a steep cliff in Portugal. The family was visiting the cliffs of Cabo da Roca on the west coast, the Independent reported. They decided to capture the moment with a selfie, but the parents somehow slipped and fell hundreds of feet to their death. Bad weather forced rescuers to give up their search Saturday. The couple's bodies were eventually found on Sunday.

They would be Darwin recipients, however they have already spawned so their genes still pollute the pool.

Their friends and family all knew "they fell very hard for each other."
