Video: Woman falls into fountain while texting

WE all know that you shouldn’t text and drive - but texting and walking seems to be equally hazardous if this video is anything to go by.

The CCTV clip, captured in a shopping mall in Pennsylvania, USA, shows a woman so preoccupied with her phone that she fails to pay attention to her surroundings.

And thus she walks straight into a fountain - and plunges headfirst into the water.

The woman, who hasn’t been identified, wasn’t hurt in the accident - although her pride probably took a bit of battering.
