The unidentified passenger was going down a flight of stairs before the incident occurred on Saturday afternoon at a subway station in eastern Chinese city Hefei.

CCTV footage obtained by Jianghuai Morning News shows the woman approaching the staircase before she accidentally missed a step while playing on her phone.

She first stumbled down a few steps before toppling over and landing on the ground floor with her face down.

Other passengers rushed to check the woman’s condition after witnessing her fall.

The woman suffered serious injuries on her face but appeared to be in normal condition, according to the local media.

The station staff called for an ambulance while tending to the victim’s wounds with temporary relief.

Another picture shows the woman being escorted by a group of officers to the emergency vehicle which took her to a local hospital.

The video has attracted over 1.6million views on Weibo, the Chinese equivalent of Twitter, with many web users regarded it as a warning to people with smartphone addiction.

One viewer wrote: ‘Don’t use your phone while walking! That looked so painful.’

Another commenter: ‘Although I sympathise with her, I think she deserved it [for using her phone].’

Earlier this year, a phone-obsessed Chinese driver crashed his new car into a river on his way to work while he was playing on his phone behind the wheel. 

The motorist veered off the course when he suddenly noticed pedestrians on the road. 

The man, who sustained a dislocated shoulder, escaped from the car by kicking open a door after it plunged into the waterway in Meitan County, south-western China’s Guizhou Province.
