Most of us have done it before – texting and walking. But a woman in England accidentally fell into an icy canal while doing it and the whole thing was captured on video.

Capital FM Radio personality Laura Safe was reportedly texting a message to her boyfriend on her way to a Birmingham shopping center.

She apparently did not notice the icy cold canal a few feet from the base of a stairway and fell right in.

“Oh dear. I should really be called Laura UNsafe after the day I’ve had! Lol,” she tweeted, according to U.K.’s The Sun newspaper. “I thought ice on the canal was pavement because it looked dark in the corner of my eye.”
