Boat Capsizes After Tourists Refused To Sit Down And Stop Taking Selfies... VIDEO

A group of tourists were dumped into one of Venice's famous canals after failing to take heed of advice to stop taking selfies and sit down on a wobbling gondola.

Footage of the aftermath showed several travellers rethinking their choices as they bobbed in the water next to a capsized canal boat.

The group had been shifting around the vessel, posing for photos in front of famous landmarks before the gondolier had to tell them to sit down and stay still while they made a careful manoeuvre under a bridge near St Mark's Square.
