A Brazilian man died over the weekend after slipping off a waterfall while taking a selfie, according to reports.

Guilherme Chiapetti, 22, plunged 32 feet while taking the photo on Saturday, landing on rocks at Cachoeira da Onça in south Brazil, The Sun reported, citing local media.

Chiapetti suffered traumatic brain injuries and died Sunday morning at Bom Jesus de Toledo hospital, the reports said.

The victim’s aunt, Ivani, mourned her nephew’s death in a social post.

“If I knew that last Sunday, that kiss would be the last one you were going to give me, I would have hugged you more and kissed you more,” she wrote.

“Go in peace my angel. God welcome you with open arms,” according to The Sun.

Chiapetti’s father told local media that his son frequented the waterfall where he fell from and enjoyed photography.
