British tourist falls to his death from Indian temple while trying to take a selfie
Roger Stotesbury, 58, had been on a year-long world tour with his wife and India was their final stop before they returned home next month, the Mail Online reported.
They were visiting the famous Laxmi Narayan Temple at around 4.30pm on Friday when police claim Stotesbury went to take the picture from on the second floor. He was rushed to Delhi’s Raja Ram Hospital but died later after it is believed he broke his back in the fall.
The father-of-two, a documentary filmmaker by profession, was standing on the edge of a 3ft wall and angling at the camera just when his foot slipped and he plunged on to the stone floor.
His wife Hilary was standing just 3-4 feet away from him when the incident happened, according to the Delhi police.
