PLAINFIELD, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey woman distracted by her cellphone was hospitalized after she fell over open basement access doors and fell 6 feet (1.8 meters) into the opening.
Surveillance video captured the woman Thursday as she walked along a Plainfield street. The 67-year-old landed in the cellar of Acme Windows, where workers were repairing gas lines.
Martin Delgadillo tells WNBC-TV in New York he was standing outside his barbershop when he saw the woman plunge through the access door.
Delgadillo says she was looking at her phone when "she hit the door and fell right in."
