    Another case of texting gone all wrong!

    A NYC teen says she fell into an open manhole while getting ready to type a text message.

    Thank goodness she's okay. Maybe cellphone manufacturers should start developing some sort of hazard sensor for phones to alert you when you are about to walk into a pole or open manhole.

    She probably would have fallen down even if there were orange cones marking the open manhole.

    Ha, that is a funny story. NYC is trying to pass a law where you cannot text or email while crossing the street. Maybe they should add manhole to it.
