Man pulls woman to safety before being hit by a car while she texted

A woman who was so engrossed in her phone she nearly got run over by a car was saved by a stranger in the nick of time. The near miss was captured on a dashboard camera in Cincinnati. In the footage, the man is seen sprinting towards the woman as she remains oblivious to the car headed her way. The stranger finally grabs her with both arms and turns her around to face the pavement. A white car is then seen driving along the road she had just stepped off.

I see this almost every day in downtown Savannah as SCAD students text and read messages on their phones as they cross the street without regard to area traffic.
