Woman Checking Facebook Page Falls Off Pier And Almost Dies
A TAIWANESE tourist was walking along checking her Facebook page when she fell off Melbourne’s St Kilda pier.
Victoria state police reported the news with the headline: “Status Update: OMG One Step Too Far.”
Senior Constable Dean Kelly of the Water Police Squad says: “She wasn’t splashing around too much, she wasn’t in a panic. She admitted, ‘I can’t swim but I seem to be floating OK. She seemed to be floating on her back.
She had a backpack on – we’re not sure if that was providing her with a bit of buoyancy or something – and we were able to pull her aboard the boat. She had a mobile phone in one of her hands and when we pulled her aboard the first thing she did was apologise, say sorry, and then she explained that she’d been on her phone checking her Facebook page when she left the jetty unexpectedly and ended up in the water.”
