London: A teenage girl, who tripped on road and got her entire leg wedged in a storm drain while texting, has become the best example of why is it hazardous to text while walking. The girl, who has not been named, was focused on her mobile phone walking down the street in Mianyang City, in southwest China’s Sichuan Province, the Mirror has reported.
Although passers-by stopped to help, she was completely stuck until someone called the fire brigade. They eventually freed her after a 45-minute wait. The unnamed girl admitted she was walking and texting a friend when the incident happened.
For all those who text and walk, it could be you stuck in a drain next.
