NEW YORK (PIX11) – It’s being called the worst selfie ever taken.

An unidentified woman was snapped taking a selfie as a suicidal man teetered on the Brooklyn Bridge behind her Tuesday morning.

The woman appears to be tilting the camera to get the unstable man in the shot as she smirked slightly.

The man was able to be talked down and rescued by police officers.

“Selfie” — a term coined for cellphone self portraits — was named Word of the Year by Oxford Dictionary.
