Remember Cathy Cruz Marrero? She’s the woman whose video of her falling in a mall fountain while texting went viral on the Internet. But even that widespread attention couldn’t teach anyone the importance of being distracted while walking. But, since she was guilty of TWW (texting while walking) it’s obvious that folks took that to mean that only texting will have such harmful effects…not true!
