Guy drops iPhone out of plane, iPhone survives, takes video of entire ordeal
Taking photos or videos with your phone out of the window of an airplane is not a great idea; the winds are strong up there in the sky, and you can easily lose your phone.
But one man who dropped his iPhone out of a plane was lucky enough to find his device afterwards in working condition. Even better, the phone took a video of the fall.
According to Brazilian news outlet G1 (via 9to5Mac), filmmaker Ernesto Galiotto dropped his iPhone 6 out of a plane on Friday from a 300-meter (984 feet) height, and found it intact next morning. The only damage was to the screen's protector, with the rest of the phone miraculously in near-perfect condition. The incident happened over Peró beach, some 100 miles east of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
"It is something that, if you tell someone, they wouldn't believe you," Galiotto told G1.

This is not the first time an iPhone has survived a fall from an airplane. In 2015, a Texas man dropped his iPhone from 9,300 feet and found it scratched by working, though his external battery was missing.
