Man, Distracted by Electronic Device, Walks Off Cliff

This must be a late entry for the 2015 Darwin Awards. Hopefully this tragic incident serves as a wake up call to all those distracted walkers out there.

Authorities have identified a 33-year-old man who was distracted by an electronic device when he fell 60 feet to his death at San Diego's Sunset Cliffs on Christmas Day, according to San Diego Lifeguards. "Witnesses stated seeing someone distracted by an electronic device and he just fell over the edge," said San Diego Lifeguard Bill Bender. "(He) wasn't watching where he was walking, he was looking down at the device in his hands."
