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

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.

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

    Personal Finance

    The good news is Tampa Bay's median household income finally crawled above $50,000 last year. The bad news is that figure — officially $51,115 by new U.S. Census Bureau data — still puts the Tampa Bay region as the poorest of the nation's 25 largest metro areas.
