Teen Girl Falls into Sewer while Texting


A 15 year old girl from Staten Island NY got a surprise while walking and texting on her phone recently – she stepped into an open manhole and fell into the sewer below.

Alexa Longueira was walking along Victory Boulevard, texting on her phone and not looking where she was going. City workers were flushing out the sewer system in the area and stepped away for a few seconds to get cones to mark the danger when the girl fell in.

Longueira suffered scrapes on her arms and back as a result of the 5 foot drop, along with a scare and a bruised ego. She was also covered in smelly sewage when the workers retrieved her, and she lost one of her running shoes.

Her mother plans on suing the city because the workers should have been more dilligent in enforcing safety protocols and barricaded the manhole, or at least marked it before opening it.

No word on if the girl texted while she was in the sewer or not.

    “Her mother plans on suing the city” – Oh c'mon! Walking around with your nose buried in your cell phone doesn't mean everyone else assumes liability.

    You know its funny, there are alot of disabled blind people out there, that would love a pair healthy seeing eyes, just so they could get around with out assistance of people and animals. And yet this teen and her mother think eyes are made for texting and not paying attention to thier surroundings. They feel they are entitled, to money because her daughter is not using her primary senses in the way they should be used. Why are stupid people being rewarded for thier own stupidity. Her mother should be thankful her daughter wasnt hit by a car or a bus because shes so busy texting. Maybe if this was a good mother and not so interested on how much she can now leech from society for her daughter`s stupidity, she would have a good long talk with her daughter about paying attention. What if her daughter had stepped on a small child because of texting. What happens when this oblivious and self entitled teen starts driving and texting at the same time. There is no lesson being learnt here, only a grab for societies money

    Instead of showing a photo of an open manhole, the photo needed here,
    is the clueless teen texting and twittering herself into the sewer.

    She's actually lucky she didn't walk in front of a garbage truck.
    Now she can text her friends…..
    “While attempting to twit, fell into 2 feet of s#it.”
