Video has surfaced of a woman who fell six feet into a basement on Thursday while looking at her phone.
The cellar doors were open on the ground of a street in Plainfield, New Jersey. But, instead of walking around the doors, she fell head first.
Her son is thankful she is alive, after the woman was taken to hospital with serious injuries. The son has not yet been identified but he said that his mother has “trouble seeing blended colors”.
He added that she felt dizzy and checked her phone to see the time.
Moments after the fall, the 67 year old woman was rescued, put on a stretcher and taken to hospital where she remains in a stable condition.
