Woman is too focused on texting & takes a dunk into a mall fountain
We've heard stories about a teenager falling into a manhole because of texting, but this video taken from a security camera shows a woman too busy texting away to even notice that she's on a collision course with a mall fountain – eventually falling into it. Granted that the outcome isn't life threatening, it just reiterates the fact that texting is a big distraction while driving.
Aside from the unfortunate event, it's rather bewildering to know that security videos like this are shared with other people aside from security guards – especially when you can hear every comment from the people who recorded the video.

I heard that there are companies out there using the camera so while you're texting you can still see an image of where you're going in front of you...
for the sake of the even further demise of America...

I hope that wasn't an iphone. I don't think water damage is covered by the Apple care plan.

Wonder if Microsoft will use this as ammo for their W7P commercials?

too bad the batteries dont have more juice in them to give their owners a little shock when they do dumb things like this.
