A teenager was walking down the street in Mianyang City, China, and wasn't paying attention to her surroundings because she was too busy texting. You can probably see where this is going: she stepped on a storm drain, and one of her legs went through the bars - and she actually ended up wedged in the storm drain, as her leg was stuck.




A few of the bars on the drain could have been bent a little bit, which made the situation even worse, according to bystanders on the street. She seems unharmed from her sudden predicament, and is more embarrassed than anything else:


"We managed to remove the bars and quickly freed her once we arrived at the scene," said Ming Lai, spokesman for the local fire brigade, in a statement to the media. "Her leg was a bit scratched and bruised and numb from being squeezed through the bars, but she quickly recovered and did not need hospital treatment."
