A Polish man and woman taking selfies at the cliffs of Cabo Da Roca in Portugal fell to their deaths.

According to investigators, the couple had been taking photos of themselves when they fell down a cliff and into the Atlantic Ocean, NBC reports.

A rescue team recovered their bodies Sunday after having to suspend their search Saturday due to bad weather.

Falling off of a cliff while snapping a photo is an uncommonly tragic event, but there is a wider trend of being distracted by digital devices that has become the focus of several public safety campaigns from car companies and government agencies.
