"Fountain Lady" Cathy Cruz Marrero (VIDEO) Considers Suing After Mall Fall Becomes Viral Sensation
READING, Pa. (CBS/AP) "Fountain Lady" Cathy Cruz Marrero is questioning the professionalism of mall security workers and considering legal action after a surveillance video of her tumbling into a mall fountain while texting made its way on the Internet and went viral.
The 49-year-old Pennsylvania woman told newspaper the Reading Eagle she both laughed and cried about her face-first flop into the fountain at the Berkshire Mall in Wyomissing.
The video shows Marrero, oblivious to the looming fountain, tripping over the edge and falling into the water. She quickly gathers her bag and dropped cell phone and walks away.
She acknowledges the video is funny, but says the security personnel heard laughing on the recording should have been more concerned about her well-being.
"I didn't get an apology, what I got was, 'At least nobody knows it was you,' " Marrero told ABC News' Good Morning America. "But I knew it was me."
Marrero has hired an attorney to look into the matter.
