SELFIES AREN'T JUST FOR DUMBASSES

Posted:

In June, as Elizabeth Neufeld, 85, backed her car out of her driveway in Bel Air, California, it tipped on a curve and rolled onto its side. Elizabeth wasn't hurt, but was trapped inside while her husband, Benjamin, 87, got out on his own. As they awaited firefighters, she reportedly handed a cellphone to a passerby so the Neufelds would have a "selfie." It made the Internet, with Elizabeth having righted herself in the driver's seat and Benjamin standing sheepishly alongside. Dr. Elizabeth Neufeld, retired, is one of the world's most prominent genetics researchers, having won numerous awards during stints at the National Institutes of Health, University of California, Berkeley and UCLA.
