Everywhere you go there are warnings about texting and driving. But texting and walking can be pretty dangerous too as the woman in this video learned the hard way.
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 canal side 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.
