Texting and walking is dangerous!

| No Comments

A Michigan woman plunged into Lake Michigan after walking off a pier while texting on Monday.

Bonnie Miller, a 45-year-old from Benton Harbor, was walking with her family on the South Pier in St. Joseph on Tuesday. Miller was texting and lost her balance, falling into the lake, Wood TV reported.

Due to the current and her clothes, Miller was struggling attempting to tread water, so Rebecca Van Zant, of Mishawaka, jumped in to help her, ABC 57 said.

Police arrived at the scene around 9:30 p.m., and threw the pair flotation devices.

Both women were successfully pulled out of the water.
