The inception of mobile phones have possibly caused more harm than good to some persons and the latest victim would definitely attest to that fact after her bad encounter.
Thankfully, the unnamed girl was almost unhurt save for some bruises but her ego was touched after she fell into a storm drain and became stuck while walking and texting.
She admitted she was walking and texting a friend when the mishap occurred in Mianyang City, in southwest China’s Sichuan Province.
The accident attracted the spectacle of many observers among whom were some ’emergency photographers’ who resorted to capturing the incident rather than helping the poor girl.
It took the intervention of the fire brigade to get the girl’s leg out in one piece after 45 minutes.
If she was a little bit larger her leg might not have fallen so far so remember that next time you need an excuse to skip the gym, Metro UK opines.
Fire brigade spokesman, Ming Lai said, “We managed to remove the bars and quickly freed her once we arrived at the scene.
“Her leg was a bit scratched and bruised and numb from being squeezed through the bars, but she quickly recovered and not need hospital treatment.”
It is not certain whether she made it through with her mobile phone or lost it during the encounter.
