Bonnie Miller of Benton Harbor, Michigan, is here to warn you about the dangers of WWT.
That's Walking While Texting, if you don't know, which Bonnie experienced first hand one fine day when she walked off a pier into Lake Michigan while texting on her phone.
Tony Spehar of ABC57 News has the scoop:
Earlier in the evening Miller, her husband Greg and her 15-year-old son Quinn had been walking along the pier enjoying the weather. They had just passed the end of the railings that extend only about half the length of the pier when Miller realized she had to send a text.
“I had set an appointment for the wrong time and so I sent about three words,” Miller described. “Next thing you know it was the water.”
Miller explained she didn’t realize how close she was to the edge of the pier, she then stumbled after tripping over something and tumbled over into the water. She and her family estimate she fell at least six-feet into the water.
“Quinn said he just heard me say ‘Oh God’ and then a splash,” she explained. “When you’re down there and the water is very low and all you see is pier.”
Consider us warned, Bonnie! Link
