Selfie gone wrong: Woman causes $200k worth of damage (w/video)

By Jack Paciotti, Times Staff Writer
A woman takes a selfie and causes $200,000 worth of damage.

A woman in Los Angeles took what could be the most costly selfie in history.

She lined up a photo at The 14th Factory, a Los Angeles art museum, and accidentally tipped over a row of pedestals that held various artworks.

The museum said that three sculptures were "permanently damaged" in the incident, Mashable reported.

The art exhibit encourages social media through its unique art style. When the exhibit first opened, the Los Angeles Times wrote a piece titled "Oh, the selfies you'll make at L.A.'s 14th Factory, where the art is so social[...]"

After the exhibits fell like dominoes, the woman tried to pick up the fallen pillars.
