TOP VIRAL VIDEOS OF THE WEEK: Girl Falls Into Water Fountain While Texting

Cathy Cruz Marrero is now known as the lady who fell head-first into a water fountain because she was texting while walking.

The incident happened in the mall where she works, and the surveillance footage was leaked onto YouTube. Instead of just keeping quiet about her embarrassing, viral moment, Marrero decided it was best to appear on national television with a lawyer.

She stated that she may sue the mall for its lack of aid and for leaking the video onto the Internet. All Marrero really did though was put a face and identity to the most embarrassing viral video of the year.

It turns out that Marrero is also on trial for allegedly making purchases with her co-worker’s credit card.
