Liza Dye is a living advertisement for why you shouldn’t walk while engrossed in something on your cell phone, especially before getting on the subway: The 25-year-old New York resident recently learned the hard way that technology can be hazardous to your health.

Dye fell onto the tracks in front of an oncoming subway train at New York’s Broadway-Lafayette Station, while engrossed with her phone on Thursday. The oncoming B train stopped short, but not before rolling right over the South Carolina native, who is lucky to be alive. …

I operate light rail trains. You would not believe the stupid things people do around trains and station platforms. Some of these people truly have a death wish.

Yeah, I’d believe it; I’ve seen a lot of it. Of course, the construction style of their stations necessitates all that penalty brake application for the sake of “safety”, never mind wearing out the cars’ brakes and suspension prematurely.

Just think of the flash and instant attention she would have created if she contacted that third rail...

600 VDC is very unforgiving. But it does bar-b-que real good..

She’d have had a better comedic outing if she’d peed on the third rail.

Might’ve boosted her intelligence by a whole three points.

I merely pointed at the scene.

Not suggesting that you in any way become part of it.

Personally, I view this person’s accident as a mechanism by which the emerging Hive Mind sluffs off an unwanted brain cell.

Which technology? The cell phone or the subway train? Sounds to me like her problem isn't the phone. Her problem is her choice of transportation.

They might want to consider changing the sidebar title. “You might also like” doesn’t seem appropriate for news stories of death and destruction.

There was also the Blondie comic where Dagwood is in the pet store looking at (i think) the mexican jumping lizard of xxxx. Jumps 100 ft into the surf says the store manager. Dagwood: how often do they do that. Manager; only once.

Not through these actions. The rules include capability of sound judgment, others must not be killed or sterilized, and the cause of demise (or sterilization) must be very uncommon (getting struck by a train or road vehicle is a disqualification).
