It’s a vacation hassle no one wants to deal with: a phone sinking in the ocean.
Fortunately for Gregory Papadin, a San Diego man vacationing in Menorca, Spain, the captain of his boat was quick to dive after his dropped iPhone 5 and retrieve it from the depths below.
“My brother tried throwing my phone to me in the ocean. It ended up going straight under water and sank to bottom of the ocean floor,” Papadin wrote on YouTube.
Paladin and his brother considered diving after it, but knew their rescue attempt would fail.
“The underwater pressure was too much for both my brother and I to swim and get it, but the owner of the boat we rented was able to reduce the pressure using a special breathing method meant for diving,” he continued. “He was able to retrieve it, and my phone managed to survive the whole ordeal!”
“Oh, no! Thank you!” Papadin exclaimed upon seeing the captain resurface with his still-working phone. “Oh, my God, thank you so much.”
