DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) _ Iowa has approved unemployment benefits for a Des Moines woman who was fired after her frolic in a stadium fountain at a Kansas City Royals baseball game.

The Des Moines Register says (http://dmreg.co/HxBQIa ) 25-year-old Jessica McCoy was granted the benefits after a hearing last month. She'd become an Internet sensation after her Aug. 5 antics were recorded at Kauffman Stadium. The YouTube video has been seen more than 147,000 times, and she's been dubbed ``Fountain Lady'' and ``Fountain Mom.''

She subsequently was fired by First American Bank in Beaverdale, a Des Moines neighborhood. Her manager said she violated company policy barring off-duty conduct that reflects poorly on the bank.

At her hearing, McCoy said the incident was blown out of proportion and that she was under the influence of alcohol.
