Apple iPad owner fumbles her tablet, gets run over by a train while trying to catch it
When Ayuso fumbled her iPad, she attempted to catch it before it hit the ground. Doing this caused her to lose her footing as she slipped off the subway platform, and right into the path of the train. Police are still investigating, but said on Sunday that the victim had not been drinking. The cops are awaiting the results of a toxicology report.
If we can take anything away from a tragedy like this, it's that you have only one life. You might rely on your mobile devices, and feel like you can't live without them. But if your iPad hits the pavement and breaks, you can always buy a new one. Perhaps it wouldn't have mattered in this situation because it is a natural reflex to try to grab something that is falling. Ayuso just might have been in the wrong place at the wrong time.
