She had been browsing her Facebook and wasn't paying attention.

Police say the woman was walking along a bay in Melbourne Monday night when she plummeted off the pier into the chilly water.

Police tell Australian Broadcasting Corp. that when they got to the scene, the woman was floating on her back and said she couldn't swim, but still had her cell phone in her hand.
