Embarrassing fall for cellphone user


A 26-year-old woman has fallen into a drain while out walking because she was checking her mobile phone and did not pay attention to where she was going.

The accident happened at the front of Muang Thai Leasing Office in Chao-fah East Road. 
Rescue workers arrived to find the woman sitting on the drain lid with her right leg firmly stuck in it.
They had to smash out some of the surrounding concrete to pull her leg out.
