An iPhone lost at the bottom of a river still works 15 months later.
The handset fell overboard when Erica Bennett and her family went on a tour with Edisto River Adventures in South Carolina, and thanks to a waterproof case it still functions. YouTuber Michael ‘Nugget Noggin’ Bennett – no relation – was diving in the body of water earlier this month when he found the device over a year after Erica thought it was gone forever.
He said: “I came across something that looked kind of like a rope maybe attached to car keys, and when I pulled it up, I saw a phone inside of a waterproof case, and I’m like no way this is unbelievable.”
He was able to charge the phone and contact Erica to return it to its owner.
