How a Cellphone Sent One Man 60 Feet to His Death

One man’s peaceful night turned into a complete nightmare when he took a deadly fall. 33-year-old Joshua M Burwell was walking and taking photos on top of Sunset Cliff in San Diego on Christmas day.

According to an NBC affiliate, witnesses say that Joshua was looking at his cellphone or another electronic device when he took a wrong step and fell 60 feet to the bottom of the cliff. Many people who were also around tried to help by giving the father of one CPR, however they were too late and Joshua was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities are now warning people about the dangers of not only driving while on your phone but walking and using your phone at the same time as well.
