Every couple of weeks we bring you a new story of somebody dying because they went too hard for Instagram.

These accidents and deaths are becoming so common that they are finally weaving into the mainstream consciousness – but not everyone is getting the message.

One couple, Kelly Castille and Kody Workman (described as an Instagram-famous travel couple according to Fox News), didn’t quite get the message that putting yourself or others in dangerous situations for Instagram pics just isn’t the cool thing to do anymore.

In an article titled, “Instagram couple defends ‘stupid' photo on edge of infinity pool,” Fox News says that in the photo, “Workman stands inside an infinity pool and holds up his sweetheart by her back and shoulders as the lovebirds kiss, while Castille dangles on the other side of the pool structure over a seemingly endless abyss.”

The post accompanying the photo reads in part: “Our greatest strength in life, our most important principle, is discernment. Only you can know your body, feel the space around you and understand your capabilities.”

The couple, for their part, are shocked that people are outraged by the photo.

Fox News quotes their response which reads: “As for safety, we are all responsible for ourselves at the end of the day….The reality is that we felt safe, stable and confident for two reasons. First and foremost, there is another pool below that we cropped out of the shot for dramatization. Secondly, we thought about this photo for days, considering the angles and potentials. We are travelers, adventurers and above all, creatives. Life is about perspectives and it is important to review them all…As for the backlash… we know we were safe. A fall would have been nothing more than a nice splash and sprint up the stairs to try it again.”

Well, for one, the most shocking revelation is that they “thought about this photo for days” before taking it.
