    I heard about this woman on the radio this morning. I bet she thinks she can text and drive too.

    It didn't seem to phase her. It would appear that her ideas about walking and texting are all wet.

    Can't faze her. She was already brain dead. The only thing keeping her "alive" is the battery in her phone.
    I have no sympathy for people like that.

    Remember the good old days? You did something stupid....then looked around to see who was laughing. Now you do something stupid, go home and check Youtube.

    The woman has been involved with some criminal activity as well:

    http://abcnews.go.com/US/fountain-fa...ry?id=12685189

    From ABC NEWS: The problems continue to pile up for the Pennsylvania woman who became the unwitting star of a viral video after she fell into a mall fountain while text messaging.

    In the hours that followed Cathy Cruz Marrero's appearance on "Good Morning America" today to talk about the fall and its aftermath, she was in court for a status hearing on charges of five felony counts, including theft by deception and receiving stolen property.

    Marrero, 49, was charged in October 2009 for allegedly using a coworker's credit cards to make more than $5,000 in purchases at a Target and a Zales jewelry store -- $1,055 of those purchases were dismissed from the case in previous hearings.

    She is expected to face sentencing at her next court date, on April 21, according to the Reading Eagle. Marrero is likely facing about six months of house arrest and electronic monitoring.

    Her probation ended in October.

    Video of Marrero's tumble earlier this month has attracted more than a million and a half views on YouTube and been shared widely on Facebook and Twitter.

    She hinted on "Good Morning America" that she may sue the mall where she fell. She has hired a lawyer to explore whether someone should have come to her aid rather than posting her image on the Internet.

    "I didn't get an apology, what I got was, 'At least nobody knows it was you,' " Marrero said. "But I knew it was me."

    She has nothing to go on for the fall and response, but there may be some repercussions for security posting the video on the internet, although I do not believe the courts would find that she had a "reasonable expectation of privacy". Plus she wasn't even hurt. Bob and Tom did a bit about this on the radio this morning, I laughed so hard I almost drove off the road!
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Not smart enough to go home , change clothes, dry out the cell phone and hope it still worked, and be quiet. I think it's more humiliating for her to stand in front of cameras admitting it was her and that's she's upset about it..... because she was dumb enough to do it in the first place. NOW ... the WHOLE COUNTRY knows who it was..... lmao.

    She does not think in that way, she just wants to get money no matter what; she has been involved in criminal activities and she is expected to face sentencing at her next court date. Now she plays the poor victim that was texting to a “friend of her church”

    Darn, a good opportunity for some gene pool cleansing, and she got back out.

    You know what her next text was: OMG i jst fl in pul.
