Emergency responders in Kodiak say they had to overcome the challenges of a cliff as well as an incoming tide to rescue a woman who fell 60 feet onto rocks.

This sounds like something out of a sitcom. And as the tide swept her out into the ocean after her 60 foot fall onto the rocks, she was madly trying to keep her head above water so her cigaretted didn't go out and she could finish her text message.

Honk if you love Jesus.
Text while walking along a cliff if you want to meet Him.

This happened to a teen on a nature hike with his family a year or so ago in CA. Kid texted right off a cliff to his death.

Neither is a capital offense, but hopefully she got some needed feedback about her behavior choices

I dodge these idiots daily, on the freeway and on the sidewalks.

No sympathy.
Hope she serves as a lesson to the other idiots.

It was the texting that “done her in”, not the cigarette.

For instance, driving while smoking is relatively safe, but texting while driving (or walking around on cliffs) is not.

The cigs usually take 30 or 40 years to kill you, texting can do it in five minutes.

I have a 72-mile round trip to work every day, 60 miles of which is on a four lane dual highway. Every day I count at least a dozen people texting while driving. The same ones, day after day. Anybody doing ten miles under the speed limit and wobbling around in their lane is texting, guaranteed.

I will be so glad when Ubama hits that Interwebs "off" switch.
