That Bridge Again

I was strolling along the Thames this afternoon, and walked past that famous fountain with the lady and the dolphin just in time to see a woman and a small boy fall into it! They were sitting on the side and the little boy leaned over to put his hand into the water. It was clear he was going to topple in, so she leaned back to grab him, and they both went in backwards. Yikes! They were wet, cold and embarrassed but otherwise fine, and several kind bystanders helped them out of the fountain and into a taxi. 
I was too stunned to take a picture of the fountain, so here is that exuberant bridge instead.
