The perils of textwalking: woman falls straight into a canal (video)

The perils of textwalking: woman steps straight into a canal (video)
Maybe it's not like falling into a 20-feet sinkhole, or not spotting a bear in your way while texting, but Capital FM radio newsreader Laura Safe experienced something that should at least be in the top 5 for this year's "Don't text and walk" compilation. 

Engaged into texting with her boyfriend, she went down a flight of stairs in Birmingham to walk straight into what seems to be a canal full of water, and the Telegraph managed to scoop the nearby CCTV camera footage to show you how it all went.

The newsreader is fine, but she apparently didn't read the memo about how much on the rise is distracted texting or talking, and is now waiting for Sony to release the Xperia Z so at least the handset could remain unscathed.
