Woman Falls in Fountain While Texting – Will She Sue? (WATCH)
Texting and driving can be dangerous – but apparently so can texting and walking, especially when you’re in a mall with a giant fountain ahead of you. Just ask 49-year-old Cathy Cruz Marrero, who works at the Berkshire Mall in Pennsylvania. Here’s why she has become the result of the popular search “woman falls in fountain while texting”:
If that doesn’t make you giggle today, I don’t know what will. Unfortunately, TIME reports that Cathy is pretty upset about the incident. She appeared on Good Morning America with her attorney, James Polyak, and they both think that Mall Security should have 1) come to her aid instead of laughing from a distance and 2) not let the video out onto the internet. Since the incident, the security worker who leaked the video has been fired.
“We plan to hold all responsible parties accountable,” Polyak said, and will at the very least request an apology from the security team. Man, where’s Gloria Allred? She’d be telling Cathy to ask for a ton of money! Of course, I’m not sure if you can sue other people for your own big fountain fail.
