Whatever you think you would do for a Klondike bar, multiply that by a thousand, and that’s what you’d do to retrieve one of your electronics. A British teen felt her phone fall out of her pocket and into a storm drain by doing what any of us would do: she tried to go down the storm drain. And onlookers said, according to The Guardian, she seemed “quite relaxed about it all–– and far more concerned with retrieving her phone.”
This is an image someone captured on the scene, tweeted out by Kent 999s.

Ella Birchenough, the teen in question, explained, “I thought to myself, ‘I’m not leaving this’ and I jumped down to get it. I wasn’t really even stuck, I just needed somebody to help lift me out but my mum got all panicky.”
Her phone, by the way, is broken.
And in case you’re wondering, no, this isn’t the first time this kind of thing has happened. A man in 2011 got stuck in a storm grate trying to get his phone out.
