This man’s Iphone fell to the bottom of an Icy Lake but 18 months later he gets a huge surprise
It can be extremely devastating to lose a phone which is why many of us are so possessive and protective of these devices. Without their smartphones, many would be at a complete loss what to do. Losing a phone is heartbreaking but what happens when you get your phone back after a couple of months, wouldn’t that leave anyone speechless?
Michael Guntrum’s iPhone survived an icy lake and remained there for a considerable amount of time till miraculously being retrieved again by Michael.
1 A day gone bad for Michael
Michael Gunstrum from Pennsylvania had gone on a fishing trip to Kyle Lake on a cold day in March 2015. He didn’t really get a good catch and to top his day from getting worse, his iPhone 4 slipped through the hole in the ice and sank to the bottom of the icy lake.
Now that must have been a real bummer for Michael after all, that should have effectively been the end of his iPhone. But Michael was in for a surprise.
2 The submerged iPhone was miraculously discovered again
18 Months later, Daniel Kalgren a mechanical engineer was walking along the basin trying his luck at metal detecting when he found an iPhone still secured in its OtterBox case. That was the only thing Dan found that day. He picked it up and took it home. At home Daniel tried cleaning the phone. One would have generally assumed that the phone lying months underwater was truly kaput.
3 The Phone turned on to his amazement
However a curious Daniel immersed the phone in rice and surprisingly to Daniel’s Amazement, the device turned on two days later. That was a miracle no doubt. News spread like wildfire and soon Apple reps got to learn that their indomitable iPhone survived an icy lake and that too lying underwater for months on end. How was it possible?
4 Michael will gift the iphone to his Mother
According to one representative, “It never ceases to amaze us, all the incredible iPhone survival stories our customers have shared with us.” Daniel soon located Michael’s number and contacted him. You could have well imagined the look on Michael’s face when he learned his iPhone survived an icy lake.
Michael had given up all hope of his iPhone but I’m sure he now believes that miracles happen. Michael is planning to gift the phone to his mother, once Daniel returned it to him.
