Their findings, which were published in the Turkish Journal of Trauma and Emergency Surgery, revealed that the majority of victims were students - and that most incidents happened in India, Russia and the US.
The most common cause of death in selfie accidents was drowning, with 57 people killed trying to take a picture of themselves in or near a body of water.
This isn't terribly surprising, as the most popular site for taking selfies which resulted in injury or death was the edge of a cliff.
Falling from a height was the most common cause of injury among unfortunate selfie-takers.
The research indicates that as selfies have become more popular, the rate of injuries as a result of taking them has increased as well.
In one particularly notable incident, two teenage girls died in 2017 after being struck by the wing of a descending plane as they took a selfie by an airport runway in Mexico.
In another incident in May, a man was mauled to death after he tried to take a selfie with a bear in Odisha, India.
