There are a couple of things in this life we can be assured of:
- If you drop your phone from 2 feet or less, the screen is cracked and you have to get a new phone
- If you lose your phone, you have to get a friend to call you to find it IF it is in a familiar location
But what happens when you drop your phone from a bi-plane over an open space over North Eastern Iowa? The average person would say, that it is broken AND gone for good.
Nope, not for Sarvinder Naberhaus. She was flying in a bi-plane just outside of Ames, IA and took out her iPhone to capture the moment. Intelligently, she decided that holding her phone OUTSIDE the plane would afford her better pictures. And they probably did, until she dropped it over the middle of nowhere. To which the pilot told her that the phone was toast and to forget every getting it back.
Amazingly, Sarvinder found her phone. No kidding. She used the Find My iPhone app and got her phone back…UNDAMAGED!!!!
While this is a lesson that putting your phone outside an airplane while it is flying over who-knows-where is a bad idea, but it is completely unfair that her phone wasn’t destroyed. (People like this is why we have to put warnings on Tide Pods)
Yes, I admit it, this irritates me as I have broken countless phone by dropping them while getting out the car. As for finding her phone lost, I wouldn’t even bother looking for it.
