He told other media: “I can say that during our investigation there was no evidence of a crime. There were no signs of drug use. It was a very tragic accident.”

A reviewer on the popular trail reporting website AllTrails wrote that he lived near the crash site and “saw a lot of helicopter emissions there.”

Andrew Thomas, who said he was on a four-month church trip with Jacobs two years ago, told the Mail that Jacobson “got along with everyone” and “treated everyone with respect.”

“Losing him is sad, but we know it’s not the end. We’ll see him again,” Thomas continued. “He’s an outsider, a hunter, a mountaineer. He did things like that – so I think he died doing what he wanted to do, sadly.

In 2018, the Journal of Family Medicine and Primary Care concluded that between October 2011 and November 2017, 259 people worldwide took selfies and died, according to media reports.

Most of the cases were in India, Russia, the United States and Pakistan. Most of the people drowned and died on the road or fell down.
