Woman is so busy texting she walks straight into a fountain and splashes headfirst into the water
There's a good reason why you shouldn't text and walk at the same time.
An unfortunate woman in China has been caught on camera heading through a shopping mall, eyes glued to her phone... only to walk straight into a fountain and splash headfirst into the water.
Despite the large pool lying right in the middle of the Beijing mall's wide corridor, the distracted lady shows no sign of noticing it.
She has eyes for nothing except the screen of her mobile as she charges at full tilt without looking up once.
The woman bashes straight into the step of the fountain, trips and goes flying.
Fortunately she manages to quickly scramble to her feet, grab her belongings and clamber out of the basin dripping wet.
Her dignity might not be quite so intact, however.

Hope the phone was waterproof one. Magic.
