While driving through a tunnel, the quartet decided it would be a good idea to pull over and start taking photos Fortunately for us, they stopped directly in view of a CCTV camera, allowing us to witness their
Perhaps thinking that they had the tunnel all to themselves, the group initially start snapping images near the center of the tunnel. Before long, the selfies start and they even go to the trouble of balancing a phone on the car to take a group shot looking down the tunnel. This decision could very well have been their last.

And if lady luck (or some guardian angels) wasn’t with them, the four could have been killed on the spot.
