A surveillance video captured the frightening moment a pedestrian fell down an open cellar into a basement while she was distracted texting on her cellphone.

The 67-year-old woman from New Jersey was walking along a Plainfield street when she fell 6ft over open basement access doors into the opening. The woman landed in the cellar of Acme Windows, where workers were repairing gas lines.

Martin Delgadillo told WNBC-TV that he was standing outside his barbershop on Somerset Street when he saw the woman plunge through the access door and into the cellar. “She was looking at her phone — the last minute — she hit the door and fell right in,” Delgadillo said.

The woman, who has yet to be identified was reportedly taken to a hospital, and according to police, her injuries were not life-threatening. “I thought texting and driving was a bad thing,” Delgadillo said. “Now it’s texting and walking.”

Time and time again we see pedestrians walking and texting at the same time, and sometimes they can be so involved in their conversations that they don’t realize they’re crossing the street at a green light. Texting while doing anything that requires your alertness can be dangerous, and in the case of this woman, she’s lucky she only suffered minor injuries.
