This is one epic fail!
This girl ended up with her leg stuck in a storm drain, after not looking where she was going because of texting on her phone.
Not paying attention, she stepped with her foot in the gap in the drain, and fell straight through. Oops.
Passers-by tried to help the girl, but to no avail, and eventually the fire service had to come and cut her out.
The ordeal lasted 45 minutes.
An eyewitness said:
She was more embarrassed than anything else, she covered her face up with her hands when people were gathered around and it was clear she didn’t want to be there.
She was incredibly thin though, I reckon normally nobody would be able to get their foot down there but the bars were a bit bent so I guess that was why it happened.Advertisement
Luckily she didn’t suffer any major injuries, just a few cuts and bruises.
This comes just after the introduction of ‘texting lanes’ on pavements. Let’s hope that these lanes don’t have any grids, curbs or manholes!
