Isn't the common consensus that women multitask better than men? Apparently they don't.... :).

I wonder if she explained to her friend she was texting why she stopped texting all of a sudden... :).

Fake.
She lifts up her leg just before she hits the fountain.
If she was unaware of the obstacle both her legs would be on ground level.

There is something called peripheral vision, you actually can see an obstacle even if not looking at it, and basic motoring reaction of your body is to, in this case, climb it, hence the risen foot.

Im happy she weren't in a car texting instead, killing someone else because she had to send that "important" text who couldn't have waited a min or two!

[citation][nom]zodiacfml[/nom]agree with the guy it being fake, was referring to the 2nd angle wherein a leg was raised was above the fountain's wall.[/citation]
So, you never noticed anything at the last minute, tried to take an action but it was too late? Wow, it must be nice to focused peripheral vision and super fast reflexes, you must be an NHL goalie.

actually, her shin just below the knee hit the edge of the fountain first, causing her leg to look like it was being lifted up as it was pressed upward. Yeah, total obliviousness.

Reminds me of the girl who fell down the open manhole cover in New York City. Yes there were cones and warning signs up, but she nonetheless managed to fall straight down into the sewer while looking at her phone texting.
