How far would YOU go to save your cell phone?
For this 16-year-old British girl, she was willing to dive down into a sewer in order to retrieve her dropped mobile!
Ella Birchenough says she was gabbing with a gal pal on her phone while walking down the street. That’s when she had a case of the butterfingers and her cellie slipped right out of her hand!
"I was talking to somebody and I went to put my phone in my pocket and it fell down the drain. I thought to myself, ‘I’m not leaving this’ and I jumped down to get it.”
Ella tried to squeeze down to the underground through a storm drain but immediately became stuck! Her waist actually trapped her in place as her legs dangled in the sewer water below!
Firefighters were called to the scene and gently pulled Ella out of this dirty (and embarrassing) mess!
She ran home and headed straight into a shower! She said:
"When they pulled me out I ran straight home and jumped in the bath. I think it was just water but I wasn’t taking any chances.”
Ella is clean and free now. Her cell phone however ended up not even surviving the fall into the sewer and will have to be replaced!
Take our advice, gurl: just get a good insurance plan for your new phone. Sewers are for rats, not teenage girls!
LoLz! We're glad you weren't hurt!!
