They don’t make them like they used to

Watch where you step. A girl in China fell through a concrete sidewalk into a 20 foot sinkhole, all of it on camera of course. CNET wants to make a fuss about the girl being engrossed in a cell phone conversation at the time, but I don’t think she would have been able to prevent the sidewalk from collapsing beneath her even if she wasn’t distracted.

  1. Yes! Exactly what I was thinking when I saw this on CNN the other day!!! Like, EXACTLY. I just thought “Umm…??? The CELL PHONE didn’t make her fall into that gianormous booby-trap-of-a-sidewalk…???!”

    Although I DO hate it when people run into me ’cause they’re staring down at their phones. So annoying.

  2. I agree… that girl could have been staring down at the ground intently and she still would have fallen into the sinkhole! This women, however, definitely was guilty of being too engrossed in a cell phone (texting) conversation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGpVpsaItpU
