Somebody called in a miracle
A man who dropped his phone into a lake in Taiwan while paddle-boarding a year ago has successfully recovered it — and it still works thanks to its waterproof protective casing, the BBC reported Friday.
The man, identified only as Chen, thought his phone was gone forever when it sank to the bottom of Sun Moon Lake. A severe drought in Taiwan has dried up the iconic waterhole and Chen’s phone was found by a worker in the mud.
The drought, Taiwan’s worst in 56 years, has been less fun for most other residents however as the government has imposed severe water rationing.
