Woman Busy Texting Walks Straight into Freezing Cold Canal

Quote:
Capital FM newsreader Laura Safe is the one making headlines rather than breaking them after she strolls straight into a canal in Birmingham while engrossed in a text to her boyfriend.
CCTV cameras in the Mailbox shopping district of Birmingham recorded the moment a radio newsreader walked straight into a freezing cold canal while composing a text to her boyfriend.
Laura Safe, who works for Capital FM's breakfast show in the city, can be seen texting as she walks down a flight of steps, unaware of the canalside a few feet in front of her. Seconds later a splash reveals she has fallen in, and she briefly flails around in the freezing cold water.
Ms Safe was pulled to safety moments later by a passer-by, with her health if not her pride fully intact.

I can't wait to see how many car accidents there's going to be because of texting once these kids that are 12 now start driving. I still can't fathom why a 12 year old needs a smartphone or really even a phone. I guess the days of "come back when the street lights turn on" is over.

People should be fined for being stupid! I think I'm the only person whose phone isn't more important than arriving alive.

My simple phone and I are happy just as we are, although I would like a camera phone.

I hate learning new things! My digital camera was in a box for over a year and even then, I didn't take the first picture.

I'd hand it to people who knew how to use one. I hit video a couple of times and recorded nothing in particular.
