A Fountain Girl Update! She Fell In The Water And Now…

| Filed under: YouTube

You've watched the video 700 times. Now, hear from the woman who'll never die down from the embarrassment…and is holding those accountable for posting this video on the internet.

Cathy Cruz Marrero is a 49-year-old born again Christian woman from Reading, PA. On that fateful day when security camera picked up her accident, Cathy was leaving her job at one of the stores at the mall and texting a friend about her birthday.

Then….SPLASH! She recalls to sources:

"I saw the water coming at me, I could see the pennies and nickels at the bottom of the fountain and then I was in it."

Thankfully, she wasn't hurt, at least physically. Emotionally, she's been a wreck ever since the video has been posted on YouTube. Mortified and a bit concerned over why no one came to help her, we've learned she's hired a lawyer, who plans to conduct an investigation into what happened. Her lawyer explains:

"We are troubled by the fact that anyone at the Berkshire Mall responsible for releasing this video would find humor in an employee injured on the premises. We intend to hold the appropriate persons responsible. No one from that security office came to her aid in a timely manner."

That's true. She could have been severely hurt had there been no water in there. But then again, to the security's credit, she walked away unscathed so all's well that ends well, right?

    "You've watched the video 700 times." The fuck I have! I've never seen it.

  2. 2

    If this woman sues than shame on her. She is the moron that fell in while texting. She should thank God for the wake-up call and that she obviously wasn't seriously injured. You know she texts and drives. She oughta laugh at herself and go on talk-shows! She would make a killing $$$ and not have to sue for such nonsense.

  3. 3


  4. 4

    Looking for a quick buck.

  5. 5

    Or. maybe instead of walking while texting she could of just stopped and got done finish texting then being a complete idiot and not pay attention to where she is going. just like all the idiots who get into car accidents for what? a text? please she has no case. honestly i can see our future and the most cause of death for people will be texting while driving or talking on the phone, instead of cancer and heart disease. such a shame

  6. 6

    Do you really need to lawyer up for something like this, jeez. I agree they maybe shouldn't of release the video, but no one would of known who she was if she didn't announce it.

  7. 7

    Hiring a lawyer doesn't take away the fact that she wasn't looking where she was going!

  8. 8

    I believe the woman has a case. I'm pretty certain there are policies against posting copies of surveillance videos on the web. If this was posted, what else has been posted? It's a violation of the subjects rights.

  9. GG78 says – reply to this


    Stupid bitch shoulda watched where she was going ! She works at the mall and somehow forgot where the fountain is ?? It's in the same place EVERYDAY !!!!!!

  10. 10

    I love that it says she is a born-again christian and then goes on to say that she has a lawyer and is concerned why nobody came to help her. The fact that she was putting her safety in jeopardy by walking and not paying attention to where she was going is her own fault, she is lucky that she didnt fall down a flight of stairs. Now I am sure the "Christian woman" is going to cause a couple security guards to possibly get fired for her own stupidity. Stupid-ass.

  11. 11

    so she needs a lawyer to "try and figure out what happened" huh? SHE WALKED INTO A FUCKEN FOUNTAIN—that's all that happened. foolish fool.

  12. 12

    Still, I'm not without sympathy for this woman. The security guard obviously brought his friends in to watch the security footage and make fun of it like assholes, then one of them posted it on the internet. I don't know if she has a case for suing them, but someone should definitely get fired for being such an unprofessional douche bag.

    True, the video makes the woman look a bit like a careless idiot, but mostly it makes the people watching it and commenting on it (who I'm assuming are the security guard and his friends) sound like total assholes.

  13. 13

    I think the main thing everyone is missing is that no one even knew who it was until she started flapping her gums about it. People! Always looking for someway to get money. What they don't understand is that we all pay more and more because of these frivolous lawsuits. Grrr…

  14. 14

    does anyone take responsibility for their own actions anymore? i didn't know you could sue for your own stupidity. maybe she should ask herself if Jesus would sue? haha!
    sounds like her ego is what took a fall.

  15. 15

    Oh please. It's her own fault for not paying attention to where she was walking. There's a big wall around the fountain, it's not like it was in-ground.

  16. 16

    There is no basis for a lawsuit. The mall does not owe a duty of care to anyone texting while walking in the mall. A negligence suit will fail - is she going to claim that the mall should have -walking while texting - lanes for pedestrians? The fact that the textaloca lady is a mall employee makes her contributory negligence even worse. There is no real injury.
    The lawyer gives true lawyers a bad name. The textaholic cannot succesfully sue for privacy rights either - she was in a public place. Once she files the lawsuit the textaholic will really lose her shit because her name will go public. Thank god the woman did not trip over a baby in a stroller. This comment is purely for editorial purposes.

  17. 17

    Re: MissPMJ – Why in the world would you think that?? Media outlets and other news sources post security videos all the time of missing children, robberies and fist fights! And I know that those sites don't have "rights" to any of those tapes, so there's no way it's illegal.

  18. 18

    just as i predicted, the employees will most likely be fired for putting this on the internet.

    also, this girl is an idiot. what are they going to look into? her texting while walking?

    and no one came to her speedy rescue? well, maybe everyone in the mall was also texting!

    and she popped up out of that fountain like speedy gonzales. she clearly was not hurt and did not need help. only her ego has been bruised.

    and now she is thinking of suing?! get a life shithead!

  19. 19

    Re: GG78 – hahaha so true. didnt even think of that. what a dumbass. theres nothing you can do but just laugh at urself…i would. whats wrong with her is beyond me, get a fucking sence of humor you stuck up biiitch! :D

  20. 20

    She's a total retard. Why is it the malls fault that she fell into the fountain? why exactly is she suing….

  21. 21

    violation of what rights? I am sure that she had notice she was on camera, she definitely was aware that she was in a mall, she definitely was aware that the mall is a public place…. rights?? she has the right to shut up, hold her head high and get over it

  22. 22

    haha only in Reading! I go to school like 10 minutes from that mall

  23. 23

    well she is the idiot who fell in.. the only case she has is that they put it on the Internet and "damaged her reputation, and emotional damage" I don't get what else there is to look into..no one helped her because she got right back out and kept walking. It she laid there longer I'm sure she would have gotten help..People sue over everything these days..I'm sure she will get some money…. unfortunately

  24. 24

    Re: hippyhub – what does her being a born again christian have to do with the story>>>? the mall security had no right to post the video, and i think she kinda got what she deserved seeing that she had her head up her ass.

    and to the christian bashers. we are not perfect. not even close. so next time you observe a christian being a hiopcrite…pray for them ;)

  25. 25

    Fucking Americans! On what grounds can she sue? For being a complete dumbass? What liability do those security employees have? It seems to me that no one is responsible for their own behaviour anymore. Fall into a water fountain that is in exactly the same place that it has always been? Must be someone elses fault! Not hers! Perhaps she should have been looking where she was going instead of having her nose in the bloody mobile phone.

  26. 26

    Oh, for God's sake! Is everyone a big fucking baby in this society these days? She was acting irresponsibly and she fell in a fountain. Big whoop. Let the bible beater take her licks and move on. If she wants help, tell her to pray for a brain.

  27. 27

    So if I'm walking around the mall not paying attention to where I'm going and I happen to trip then I can sue and make someone else pay for my stupidity? That's bull shit!

  28. 28

    GOLD DIGGER. Lawyers are worse than the unions

  29. Marcy says – reply to this


    It figures she hired an attorney. Dumb ass is now trying to make some money. If she worked at a store at the mall, wouldn't she know that there was a fountain there?

  30. 30

    Re: hippyhub – And they should get fired. Totally. What they did was incredibly mean spirited and I have no sympathy for people like that. Sure, it's a little quirky and maybe funny at first. But their asses should be canned for laughing at it over and over again and posting it on the web. I think she has a case. People have got to stop doing this shit at other people's expense.

  31. 31

    I found this video alot funnier when I thought it was a stupid teenage girl that fell in the fountain. Now that I know she was 49 it's just not as amusing.

  32. 32

    Anything for Money

  33. 33

    No one came to her aid because they just assumed a fat clumsy whale had gone for a little swim.

  34. 34

    Oh come the fuck on! They're HUMAN–of course they're gonna find humor in this! There isn't a human being on earth who wouldn't have laughed at that! LOOK WHERE YOU'RE GOING NEXT TIME, BITCH!

  35. 35

    Yes someone must pay for her stupidity! How dare she simply be stupid without SOMEONE ELSE being at faulty? This all started with hot coffee at a MacDonalds, folks. Yes, that is why our drink cups now have say "Warning contents may be hot" or "Warning contents may be cold" now it twill be "Warning mall fountains may be wet"! No, I bet they do away with them altogether. No more wishing wells in malls, kiddies!!

  36. 36

    So if a person is driving and texting and they get into a non-injury accident, the highway patrol are liable for her non-injury?

    A mall is a PUBLIC space. You are not entitled to ANY privacy in a public space. The mall security cameras are guaranteed the same freedom as the paparazzi. If your dumb ass was caught on film by the paparazzi, do you think you would have a case?

    No injury. You walked away. No reason for the security team to see about you.

    You're just a dumb ass, with a lawyer.

  37. 37

    Ok…so no one came to help her….boo hoo….ever think maybe she should have been paying attention to what she was doing and she wouldnt have fallen in the first place…..and also she is an employee so she should have known the fountain was there…..and you cant sue someone for being stupid…..she didnt get hurt….she got wet but not hurt…..if this lawyer really thinks they're gonna win this then they are a big an idiot as the woman who fell in the fountain…..its not like she tripped and fell in…..she WASNT EVEN PAYING ATTENTION….she was too busy texting.

  38. 38

    Re: Dylan76 – So you have a soft spot for negligent 49 year olds?

    I'm sorry, 49 isn't old. She should have been more careful.

    So if a 50 year old man who's texting falls down an escalator for not paying attention to where he was going, and dies…who's responsible?

    Get real. People in this country need to be more responsible for their own actions.

    I'm tired of dumb ass people….and those who support them.

  39. 39

    I'm so sick of this country where you can just sue anyone you want because you made an idiot of yourself. Start taking responsibility for you own actions America.

  40. EMJ3 says – reply to this


    Wait, wait, wait….so SHE falls into the water because SHE wasn't paying attention, and she's going to sue these people for not coming to her aid? Because it looked like she got up on her own juuust fine. Lame, so lame.

    You can't even make out the woman's face on here, so why she's so mortified I don't know. I wouldn't be able to pick her out if she was my own mother.

    Another greedy person looking to get a buck where they can.

  41. 41

    you can sue someone because you fell down?
    Sweet I'm gonna go to my mall right now and fall into the fountain!

  42. 42

    What a dumbass, why would you even come forward to say it was you. Born again Christian my ass, she's after the money. Stop texting and walking same concept of texting and driving. Stupid broad. It's her own damn fault.

  43. 43

    That video made me LOL really hard!

  44. 44

    Shame on this money grubbing Christian - can't she just forgive and acknowledge that she made a stupid mistake by not looking? Just don't understand these born again christian types. and she's now getting a lawyer to sue the surveillance company? what a load of crock! more like an opportunist to me !!

  45. 45

    Just like some fuckin born again freak. sueing for bullshit

  46. 46

    Re: Beatnik – really????… I guess there's always one sympathetic douche bag out there and your IT!!! She was texting and fell into a fountain… I think that is called negligence!!

  47. 47

    Re: tamzin – Luv it… Would Jesus sue!!?? Best post… Maybe with the 10 bucks she garnishes from the lawsuit she could have a bracelet made…

  48. 48

    Take away all warning labels and let natural selection occur.

  49. 49

    This woman is an idiot!!! She falls in the fountain for doing the silliness of not looking forward and she want to sue someone because they laughing at her?? Perhaps if she would had done only one thing she wouldn't be embarrased now. Trying to sue someone is totally lunatic, lol…

  50. 50

    Boo hoo — how can she blame the mall for her stupidity?

  51. 51

    Why do I give a shit if this stupid bitch is a crazy ass born-again christian? What the hell does this have to do with the story. Poor job of writing. Those people are nuts anyway-this kinda makes sense now!

  52. 52

    why add the "born again Christian" part? Seems a little odd to add that in there.

  53. 53

    I think the woman has a valid point. I mean, the mall should totally be held liable for putting that fountain there.

  54. Laura says – reply to this


    okay, general security guards maybe shouldnt have posted it - but lets say it was the mall's owners… they own the footage and property and if they wanted to they can release the clip. So can anyone else at the mall at the time watching/recording. My point is - it got released, one way or another, deal with it. Also, these guards, even if they were close, she got up and left - wtf did she want them to do? Did she seek medical attention after this? Please, she just wants to sue, how very christain of her.

  55. 55

    she can't sue! you need to watch whats in front of you. its not as appauling as texting and driving.. which im guessing she does. but it's just as accident prone, her eyes were looking in her phone and she tripped into something nobody else walking in the mall would ever trip into. you can't sue someone else cause youre dumb.

  56. 56

    Only in America can you sue for being a fcuking idiot and not watching where you are going.
    I hope they don't settle with her and take it to court and let her attorney drain her bank account.

  57. 57

    what a dumbass…it was her own stupid fault..pay attention to where you are walking. if she works there she should know there's a fountain in the middle of the mall….for her to turn around and sue is a joke…i hope it gets thrown out of court and she gets stuck with the legal fees for wasting everyone's time…dumb ass

  58. 58

    Ugh this stupid bitch is going to sue. NM that it's HER fault her stupid ass can't be bothered to pay attention or anything.

  59. 59

    So she believes in God, will she sue him too for not blessing her with an intelligent brain or for not divinely guiding her PAST the fountain??

  60. 60

    awww =(

  61. 61

    Fking lucky it wasn't a car she was driving and hit someone head on cuz she was too stupid to pay attention. Dumbass lawyer…she got out of the pool so quickly no one had time to help plus who would want to help someone so stupid?

  62. 62

    Of course she's following through with a frivolous lawsuit. She's 49 and works in a mall!!! She's probably broke as fuck! What a loser!

  63. 63

    Re: betty.boop – What the fuck does this have to do with Americans?!?!?!?!?! People like you make me fucking sick!! Go fuck off and die….or better yet…kill yourself.

  64. 64

    Lol.. that guy seems to be trying to talk to her while she has her back towards him. He was probably mad ’cause he had to turn around and clean that trail she left! ha ha ha dummy :)

  65. 65

    yet you put the video on here for all to see over & over again perez…still a big f'n bully!

  66. 66

    She's embarrassed that the video came up on youtube..But theres no way in hell anyone that even knows her can identify her. Coming out and trying to sue made it public..Now everyone knows its her..Can you say moron?

    I'm more concerned about privacy no longer being existent. It's a fucking shame. That I can be out doing something, If something were to happen then bam im all over the internet thanks to moronic kids. But they are 100% in their rights and its legal to do something like this without ANY regard for the other person. All because of that "You're on public property we're allowed to film you and upload it to whatever we see fit"

  67. 67

    She can't sue anyone. It's called personal liability. The video also clearly shows she was distracted by her cellphone and fell into a fountain.

    She can however get the security guards fired which is actually totally dependent on rather or not its against policy to leak security footage. Which I'm guessing no.

    She's wasting her time/money. however, If they were mopping the floors and they failed to put out those yellow cones that say "Wet floors" and she were to slip and fall then yes you can sue. Thats negligence on their part.

    We're living in world where most people CANNOT take responsibility for their actions. why would they? It's easier to just point your finger and blame someone else.

    Kinda like how fail parents blame MTV, Media, Entertainment industry, Celebrity athletes/actors for being a "bad role model" which in reality its their own fault and their idiotic kids fault. No one elses.

  68. 68

    They replay it, so obviously its a prerecorded tape. Maybe a security guy DID go down to see if she was okay? Also, if she had just kept her big mouth shut, no one would've known it was her. Stupid bitch!

  69. 69

    Re: PerezSux54 – The reason Betty Boop mentioned Americans is because in other countries there is the perception that in America you can be a complete dumbass and get paid for it (eg. Antoine Dodson) or better yet you can have a fair shot at being President (eg Sarah Palin, her career wouldn't have lasted five minutes in any other democratic country I assure you, the fact that she is as popular as she is in the U.S. astounds us and has us shitting ourselves all at once!). There is also the perception that Americans always blame someone else for their own mistakes and problems, and that you can sue the pants off anyone for anything. These may not be entirely correct but that's the way it is. Telling people to fuck off and die doesn't help to create a better perception of your country either.
    Btw you do know dying and killing yourself are basically the same thing right? So one isn't really better than the other.

  70. 70

    she is damn lucky that it was a fountain and not traffic
    this should teach her and everyone else that texts while doing other things a lesson

  71. 71

    she has no right to sue. it was her own stupid fault and she said so herself that she wasn't hurt. this is just a case of a very embarrassed person trying to blame someone else for their own stupidity. it will get thrown out of court because the mall is in no way at fault. they probably shouldn't have released the video to save her embarrassment, but this kind of stupidity needs to be seen by the world! retard.

  72. 72

    Re: MissPMJ – you forfeit your right to privacy as soon as you enter an area that is under surveillance. that's how you catch criminals. there's websites that pay the public to monitor surveillance cameras and report crimes. if such laws existed, these websites wouldn't.

  73. 73

    I just saw this moron on CNN. If she gets any money from the mall, I hope she uses it for long-term in-patient psychiatric care. What a fucking baby.

  74. 74

    She obviously did the Christian thing and forgave everyone at fault… herself.

    Now she is enacting phase 2: Punish those who mocked her.

    Jesus approves!

  75. 75

    I hope she reads this: Cathy Cruz Marrero your God will not forgive you for blithely suing when this is no fault of anyone but your own! It is not very Godly to be so irresponsible with your own person and then blame others.

  76. 76

    Why is she suing? I can't even tell who she is in this video. I can't see her face at all. Its her own fault for complaining after ward and now bringing attention to her identity. It was clear the security guard and the people are watching the video AFTER the fact and could not come to aid her. She was CLEARLY uninjured as she hurriedly crawled out of the fountain soaking wet. Its no one's fault but her own. She should have been looking where she was going. But knowing how the US Justice and Civil systme works, I bet you she'll win her case. I've seen dumber cases awarded money. Like the burgarler who broke into some man's house, tripped, injured himself and then sued and won.

  77. 77

    omfg y'all are stupid. she is suing the people who released the tape of her falling… not the mall for having a fountain there.
    she was emotionally distressed. the whole nation is laughing at her… because of the people who put the tape on youtube.

    btw… what does the fact that she is a born again Christian have to do anything?

  78. 78

    Re: aishiteru – the fact that she's a born again christian is relevant because it gives some background about why she has a stick up her ass and no awarness. and why the fuck cares if the tape was released, if she hadn't said shit herself no one would know it was her. and it's not like she owns the rights to the tape. it's morons like her (and prolly you) why they put "caution:hot" on coffee cups.

  79. 79

    Re: aishiteru – also the fact that she's a born again christian is relevant because it explains why she's externalizing blame. shes not to blame for walking into the fountain like a moron. it's everyone elses fault for laughing at her.

  80. 80

    lol, oversensitive much lady?? I fall in front of people and no one helps me up - should I sue them too?? Get a life.

  81. 81

    Ok, before this was funny and now it just makes me mad. 1) It was her own damn fault. 2) No one would have known it was her if she would've kept quiet. 3) She wasn't hurt. She was embarrassed and rightfully so, which is why she got out of the fountain like a bat out of hell. 4) She's mad the security guards were laughing? Could you imagine being the security guard who saw that? They were laughing bc it is freaking hilarious! What a moron! 5) I bet she would've been more embarrassed if security would have rushed to "help" her. I know I would've been! It would've confirmed that other ppl saw it. 6) When did we lose the ability to laugh at ourselves? I laugh at myself when I do dumb things. I probably would've asked for a copy of the video so I could show my friends. LOL

  82. 82

    if you can't walk and text you probably shouldn't drive and text either….this is just sheer HILARITY.

    she just chalk it up as oopsie and go on with her day. no one knows who the EFF she is anyways…it's funny.

  83. 83

    Ridiculous! Honestly, it seems like the American Legal System allows people to sue for anything. coffee is hot, fast food isnt good for you and when you fall in shit , its your own damn fault!

  84. 84

    She's a fucking idiot. She's too absorbed in herself to even notice a water fountain, but the world should come rushing to her aid even though she popped right out and kept walking?? Gee, somebody call 911 quick, she got wet!

  85. 85

    If anyone will recall the video was launched on Kieth Obermann's Countdown show earlier this week as a stupid person clip….so is he culpable also seeing as it garnered more attention after he showed it????? So if this "Christian" lady gets anything out of it will she give some of her ill got gains to the church????….and above all it was funny as hell

  86. 86

    Guess she doesn't make enough at her retail job. Maybe god told her to sue. No one was standing around watching her flail about in the water. You can't even see anyone on camera watching her in the water. Hell, she was in the water for about 5 seconds, got up and kept going. Hope her driving and texting isn't as bad as her walking and texting.

  87. 87

    Re: chichimagees – You are so totally right & I bet AFTER her pointlss lawsuit she starts her TV interviews about her "suffering" or whatever BS. Maybe someone will post a video of her texting & driving, too funny

  88. 88

    Once again you crazy americans refuse to accept personal responsibility and instead sue everyone around you! She was dumb enough to text while walking and so dumb that she walks right into a fountain. Had there been no water, the only thing she would deserve is a Darwin award. She should be humiliated, maybe then she'll learn…that or next time she'll be crossing the street….

  89. 89

    Why bring up that she's a born again christian? What does that have to do with the story?
    I think we all would have been content with "woman from PA. falls in mall fountain." Your words speak volumes. Quite sad, really.

  90. 90

    woooooowwwww take responsibility for your own actions!!!!!! you were walking and texting!! people will sue over anything!!!

  91. 91

    Oh DEAR LORD!!!
    a lawyer???? seriously???
    this woman is an idiot and works at a mall, and thinks shes entitled to compensation for her own stupidity and carelessness??? REALLY?
    what is this world coming to?
    Id have been laughing at this idiot too if I was working in security. People get into car accidents every single day, not watching what they are doing, and do they sue the car company?
    Id laugh at her if I was a judge.
    next time, pay attention idiot

  92. 92

    Who cares if she is a christian? Who cares that she's a moron that fell into a fountain? If she's looking for a quick buck she should have rode this stupid instant youtube fame horse as long as she could. Now she'll just be that dumb b*tch that fell into a fountain and then had the balls to sue. I'd like to sue her for being an idiot. Do you think I have a case?

  93. 93

    I think the only thing she could sue for is if we would clearly see her face in the video. But we cannot ! It's her fault she fell in the fountain. She was texting and not looking where she was heading. The employees should not have put this on the internet. However, her face is TOTALLY NOT visible. She cannot be identified. So what prejudice did she suffer ? She is simply trying to make a buck out of this incident. As a "Christian", she should "praise the Lord" that he sent her a warning….Like Oprah always says " God whispers at first"…..so stupid lady, just listen. Hopefully, you will not text while driving. This could be a warning ! Just saying !

  94. 94

    Once I realized that Cathy wasn't hurt I laughed my arse off.
    If you are a christian woman learn to laugh at yourself.
    Get over it!
    It is funny!

  95. 95

    I hope this stupid bitch gets NOTHING.She works at the mall and doesn't know the fountain's there.I suppose it's a portable fountain they move every day.I hate lawyers.

  96. 96

    Lighten up. Learn to laugh at yourself. And stop being so materialistic and creedy.

  97. 97

    lmaooooo seems like just a way to get a few bucks.. *yawn*

  98. 98
