Video: Woman falls into mall fountain while texting on cellphone

By Kev Hedges     Jan 18, 2011 in Technology
A video released on the Internet shows just why you should pay attention to where you walk when sending text messages on your mobile phone.
The inattentive woman was caught on CCTV by security guards walking in a straight line with all her attention on sending a text message. She is seemingly oblivious to her surroundings and even more oblivious to what lies waiting right in front of her.
The unknown woman is seen walking in a straight line towards an unheated mall fountain in the US. The video shows the woman plunging unceremoniously into the water before embarrassingly clambering out the fountain to continue her text messaging.
The perils of social networking are laid bare as the video turns viral on the Internet. On Gear Live, video blogger Andru Edwards, writes: "You should really look up every once in a while, just so you can be aware of your surroundings. You dont wanna end up in this unfortunate situation."
The video was posted with commentary by what is believed to be either security guards or mall employees who watched the video repeatedly, reports Mail Online.
