We all know someone who is just a bit too attached to their phone…but this German boy takes his love for his phone to a whole new level!
A 16 year old German schoolboy was on a fishing trip with his friends when he accidently dropped his iPhone into the pond.
After the club refused to let him dive to find his phone, the boy took drastic measures, sneaking back in the night with a pump to drain the pond!
The boy admitted that he knew the phone was probably no longer working but he wanted to retrieve the data card with all his contacts, photos and videos he had stored on it.
The boy’s plan backfired when he failed to realise that the club toilet he had attached the pump to wasn’t attached to a sewage system, resulting in a flooded car park.
The owner quickly showed up and called the police and the boy was ordered to pay for the damage and the water to refill the pond.
He didn’t find his phone but wasn’t sorry for trying and insists his plan almost worked.
