An Example Of Walking While Distracted [VIDEO]
First it was distracted driving. Now it’s distracted walking, all caught on tape.
A man was on the platform last year at the Berks SEPTA station on the Market-Frankford line in Philadelphia talking on his cell phone according to PhillyMag.com. He was so engrossed in his conversation he took a long walk on a short platform and wound up falling onto the tracks, hitting his head and momentarily passing out.
SEPTA is releasing the video as part of a public awareness campaign about paying attention to your surroundings.
