Student breaks old statue while taking selfie

  • A teenager reportedly broke a centuries-old statue while trying to take the perfect selfie. Witnesses in Milan mentioned that the foreign student sat on the lap of a statue and broke the leg under him. 

    The broken "Drunken Satyr" was only a duplicate of an original but still dates back to the 19th century. 

    "We think this is an accident," the Brera Academy of Fine Arts' director said. It's unlikely that the teenager will be caught since no footage of the incident was captured.
