    Default Texting Teen Girl Falls Into Manhole, Parents Blame City

    Teen Girl Falls In Open Manhole While Texting
    Alexa Longueira Suffers Deep Cuts, Bruises After Landing In Raw Sewage, Blames DEP For Leaving Hole Unattended Reporting


    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.

    She said the manhole she fell in to was left open and unattended with no warning signs or orange cones. She said two workers with the New York City Department of Environmental Protection failed to secure the area as they prepared to flush the sewer.

    "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."

    Longueira said she was helped out of the five-foot deep sewer by an apologetic DEP worker.

    She went to the hospital and the city opened an investigation, issuing the following statement:

    "We regret that this happened and wish the young woman a speedy recovery."

    The Longueira family wants more than get well wishes. They may sue. Alexa's mother, Kim, said: "It could have been an elderly person, a mother pushing a stroller. It could have been anyone."

    Alexa lost one of her sneakers in the sewer. She does not want it back.

    The girl's mother said Alexa will see more doctors next week to get an MRI and check for damage to her spine.
    I would have taken away her cell phone.

    Sorry, little girl. The careless mistake was all yours.

    Alexa has learned a character building smelly life lesson. Now if we could only find a way to dunk all nitwits who constantly text in raw shit....

    True story:

    On prom night, a few years after I had graduated highschool, some kids were killed in a bad crash. The families tried to sue the county because the trees they hit were "Too close to the road". The case was thrown out due to these facts:

    The driver was drunk, and 19 years old.

    The driver had a suspended driver's licence - for drinking and speeding.

    The car (which was ripped in half by the impact) had it's speedometer frozen at 110mph. (the take-off speed for a Cessna is 65 mph, which weighs the same as the car in the accident.

    The parents were incredulous that their case was thrown out.

    I actually agree with the girl on this, an uncovered manhole is an accident waiting to happen. She seems to have been very careless but this could have just as easily happen to someone having a conversation with someone and not paying attention. Don't think she deserves none of the blame but this is at least 50% the fault of the city.

    More in the favor of the girl 75% to 25% on this. You can not leave a manhole open. Are you going to blame a person for hitting a open manhole with their car. People do it with potholes all the time. Right? And your still payying attention.

    Well ever since that stupid twit burned herself with the McDonald's coffee and got her payday, shitheads like these parents just look at society as one big fucking blank check just waiting for them to fill in their name.

    That is part of the lawsuit happy nonsense that has gone on since the early eighties, but in the case of the person scalded by the drive through coffee, she in fact did have a valid case. The McDonald's worker served the coffee at such a high temperature that the contents literally melted the cup, resulting in severe burns to the drive-through customer.

    I used to think that was a bullshit lawsuit until I saw the photo's of the woman's legs after the coffee spilled. It was not a normal burn, the skin peeled off her legs. She deserved every penny she got IMHO.

    And thats about what its worth.

    well, i guess i am one of the last 'kids' who takes responsibility for my actions and shit. if that was me, i'd be apologizing to the guy who helped me for my stupidity of walking and texting. hell, i can't even chew gum and walk at the same time.


    but in reality, what if it was an older person, paying attention, and didnt have a second to spare to move out of the way? or someone pushing a stroller?

    Okay, I looked it up too and YIKES.....Looks like an alien bled acid on her damn skin. (actually a pic of what a THIRD DEGREE burn looks like, not necessarily of this woman's injury).

    This case may be the exception to the rule, but we're far, far too litigious a society now.
