The pressure to post amazing photos on Instagram is real, but in this tragic story, one teen went too far to capture a stunning image. 

Andrey Retrovsky, 17, climbed to the top of a building in Vologda, Russia, with a friend in hopes of snapping a photo that made it appear as if he was falling from the roof. He was secured with a rope, but when the rope failed, Andrey plunged nine stories to the ground.

His fall was slightly cushioned by bushes, but local Russian media outlets reported he died from extensive injuries two hours later while being treated at a hospital.

Andrey was a thrill-seeker who loved scaling buildings and balancing on ledges to stage terrifying shots.
