As her eyes focused on her keyboard, her legs were sucked into the sewers of Staten Island, where who knows what vermin and demons scrape together their survival.

This would happen to me. But I have really good peripheral vision from walking while texting. It's actually quite extraordinary.

Oh please let there be a video of this.

Seriously I hope she wasn't injured, but I am thinking YouTube Moment.

Idiot...

You know how many people I have dang near run over in a parking lot because they were texting and just walked out from behind a car not even looking up because they were texting? Well..it's a lot.

Seriously, if it's that important to text someone back right then and there, stop, find a place out of the way of other people's traffic and then text. It's not hard to do.

The best part of the article:

The teenager lost a sneaker when she fell. She doesn't want it back.

Somehow she is OK for scrapes on her back.
She was interviewed on local NYC TV.
Perhaps for her it was like jumping a a chair and slipping off
since her back was marked with large scape marks.
