    there are already a large number of people, perhaps numbering more than a hundred of falling into any of these reported incidents while using mobile devices:
    1. falling into open manholes, canals, waterways, potholes
    2. bumping into another person

    5. students censured by the teacher for using mobile devices while in class.
