It’s like the opener for a nice piece of slapstick: a 15 year old fucking moron walks into an open manhole…
It was an accident waiting to happen — an open sewer and a 15-year-old girl who was texting while she walked.
Alexa Longueira, a high school sophomore, was walking along Victory Boulevard near Travis Avenue on Staten Island Wednesday evening when she felt the earth move and was plunged into smelly darkness.
Shit for brains ends up literally in the shit. Perfect!
“It was just really gross and it was shocking and scary,” she said. “Because of their careless mistake I got hurt.”
Longueira has deep cuts and bruises and said she now has nightmares about falling, But she also did admit she was texting at the time.
“Regardless of whether I’m texting or not if there was a cone there I’m going to see a big orange cone,” she said. “I walk that sidewalk every day, I don’t expect a big hole there.”
Of course it was “their careless mistake”. Personal responsibility need not apply.
Of course they’re planning to sue.
There ought to be laws against aggressive stupidity.
