Two girls tragically lost their lives while taking selfies.

The two friends plummeted to their deaths after climbing onto rocks to take selfies with a beautiful view in the background.

12-year-old Arandari Paola Garcia and Mariana ‘N’, 17, were camping with their families on a secluded beach in Mexico, when the tragedy occurred.

Police said that the girls wandered away from their families because they wanted to take pictures of the ocean. They climbed onto big rocks in Rosarito, Baja California, to take selfies.

One girl slipped and fell. She drowned in the ocean. The other, who was killed by a severe head injury, was found trapped between two rocks.

Investigators believe that after the girl fell into the ocean, her friend tried to save her, but she fell and got trapped between the rocks.

Police said the families who are from Tijuana, alerted police after the girls did not return for about 40 minutes. Some of their belongings were found on top of the rocks.
