A young female tourist was so engrossed in Facebook on her mobile phone that she walked off St Kilda pier and almost drowned, police say.

Is that what happened to the lemmings?

No, the lemmings were taking selfies.

Darwin award contestant.

I'm impressed that she still had her phone in her hand. Gonna take a lot of rice to dry it out, though.

How did she not notice that rail that's been around every pier I've ever been on?
Can we get a link to what she was looking at?

jeez those are some lazy sharks, they had a tasty morsel just floating there for 20min, the youngs just don't get it...
