Woman checks Facebook and almost drowns
December 19 , 2013
This woman would have probably wanted to update her Facebook status to "I'm falling off a pier" if it were possible
Melbourne police said the tourist was so busy using her smartphone that she didn't realize when she walked off a pier. She would have drowned if someone hadn't seen the fall and called the police. She was 100 feet away from the pier when the police pulled her out of the water.
The worst part is that she didn't know how to swim but her backpack helped her to float until the police arrived. The woman apologized and said "she was on her phone checking her Facebook page when she fell into the water," a police spokesman said.
At least luck was on her side and the incident probably taught her a life lesson.
