Boy Hurt Walking While Texting

BOSTON (CBS) – A 14-year-old boy is recovering after he was hurt “walking while texting.”

MBTA police say the unidentified teen was walking at the Government Center T stop and was apparently so engrossed in his texting that he walked right into one of the columns that holds the ceiling up.

Boston EMT’s were called in and the boy was taken to Tufts Medical Center where he was treated for a small laceration to his forehead.
