This is the hilarious moment an unfortunate woman became an accidental internet sensation when she fell into a shopping mall fountain.

Woman falls into shopping centre fountain while texting

Embarrassed Cathy Cruz Marrero was texting away in a Pennsylvania shopping centre when she tripped over a low wall – straight into the water feature.

A security guard at the shopping centre then uploaded the footage to the internet – with the clip viewed more than 3.5 million times in the past week.

The unnamed guard has since been fired by U.S. Security Associates, which provides security for Berkshire Mall in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania.

Mrs Marrero is now threatening the mall with legal action after being humiliated as a result of the incident.

The 49-year-old, who works at the mall, told Good Morning America that someone should have helped her rather than turn her into a global laughing stock.

She said: “I usually don’t walk and text, but I did this day. I won’t anymore.”
