Footage shows a distracted woman on her cellphone fall into an open sidewalk cellar


A woman who was walking and looking at her cell phone took a hard fall into a sidewalk cellar on Thursday.

The 67-year-old woman walking down a New Jersey street plunged down a sidewalk opening after tripping over the cellar doors in front of a New Jersey window shop.

Paramedics carried the woman away on a stretcher. Police said she was seriously hurt in the fall, but is now in stable condition.

The video shows the woman falling into the street and then being taken away in a stretcher.

The woman's son said she can't see blended colors and wishes the crews working on gas lines had put up cones or something.

One witness told NBC4NY: "I thought texting and driving was a bad thing," Delgadillo said.

"Now it's texting and walking."
