Cathy Cruz Marrero hired a lawyer to sue the mall after she fell into their fountain while she was busy texting.
The woman believes mall security was negligent in how they handled the incident.
“My issue is I don’t think security was professional because they didn’t send anyone to check on me until 20 minutes later and I had already left”¦ Instead of laughing, they should have said, “˜Is she OK?’ and been down there right away to check on me,” she said.
The embarrassing incident was caught by the mall’s surveillance video, which was later posted on YouTube.
Cruz Marrero, 49, who works in the mall, has hired an attorney.
Marrero said she wasn’t hurt physically but was hurt by “the humiliation (from the video having been put online). The humiliation. Ask my husband: I cried for days. “¦ You don’t know how many people are laughing at me.”
Texting while walking, Cruz says, is “dangerous. “¦ I could have been walking into a bus, a car, a ditch, anything. Texting and walking, take it from me, is dangerous. It really is.”
