Lady Trips Into A Mall Fountain
Video of a woman falling into a mall fountain is a hit on Youtube, but the woman who took the tumble says it's no joke. INSIDE EDITION has the story.
It's the video that has the entire nation laughing of a woman tumbling head first into a water fountain at the mall while texting.
Now we know the identity of the woman and she says it's not at all funny.
Cathy Cruz Marrero's tumble is a YouTube hit. It's been viewed almost 2 million times. The video was posted by an unidentified mall security guard, who has been fired.
"I fell, I fell, I fell in the fountain. My boot hit the edge of the fountain and I fell over, I couldn't see anything that I could grab, so I just went forward. Next thing I know I'm seeing pennies and coins in front of my face and I was in the water," says Marrero.
The 49-year-old woman says what's hurting most of all is hearing those fits of laughter at her expense.
"It really is humiliating. It's funny when it's not you. When it's you it's a totally different feeling," as Marrero turns around and cries.
Marrero, who works at a store at the Berkshire Mall outside Allendale, Pennsylvania where the accident happened, suffered a few bumps and bruises, but learned an important lesson, "Texting and walking, take it from me, it's dangerous."
