Kelly and Michael: Texting and Walking
A woman in Soho near the subway station by Kelly Ripa’s home was texting while walking and fell off the subway platform onto the tracks as a train was approaching. The subway operator hit the emergency brake, but there was not enough time to stop. Because she was so small, she managed to lie still between the tracks and let the train roll over her, only to get up unharmed afterwards.
“I walk and text, but you always know where you are,” Michael said. “How can you be that blind?” He did not understand why you would not be more aware of your surroundings. Also, a camera outside showed that there were 4 1/2” of sludge outside the studio.
