Man Amazingly Catches Phone When Someone Else On The Rollercoaster Drops It
This man catching a flying phone as he rides on a rollercoasteris pretty darn impressive.
I’m not a fan of rides. I can’t get on with them. I don’t really understand why, since I love drivingfast, but I’m not a good passenger either.
Maybe it’s something about not being in control myself.
If I was allowed to drive the rollercoaster instead of just sit in it, then I might be into that, but apparently that’s not allowed.
Along with that, the addition of smartphones to being on our person at any given moment seems to have had away with spontaneity.
Catching a strangers phone on roller coaster
Gone are the days when someone could jump in a lake with their only worries being that they’ll get their shoes wet.
Now, having a phoneon you is something you have to think about when you’re, say, ride a rollercoaster.
Is it secure in your pocket? Will it slip and be lost in the ether forever?
Maybe it’s not worth getting on the rollercoaster… just have a swipe through Twitter and scroll though Instagram.
Well, apparently one person didn’t have those reservations when getting on a ride in Spain, and that was to their detriment as their phone escaped their grasp.
Luckily, a man behind the YouTube channel “sirsammy 15” (@sirsammy1550) was there to catch it in what’s a pretty remarkable footage.
His name is Samuel Kempf from Timaru, a city in the South Island, New Zealand.
He seems pretty pleased with himself, doesn’t he?
To be fair, he should be.
It was a pretty remarkable catch and apparently the people behind him thought so, too. Just consider the way high-fives were shared onboard the moving rollercoaster.
I was actually worried it would slip out of his hand as he celebrated.
On his YouTube post, the hero wrote:
I caught a stranger’s phone in midair on a roller coaster! I was in Spain at Port Aventura on Shambhala ride and saw the person a few rows ahead drop their iPhone X.- Samuel Kempf
Then he added:
Long story short I caught it. This roller coaster is moving at over 130 km. . . . was once Europe’s tallest and fastest coaster . . . only recently beaten.- Samuel Kempf
In the “About” section of his YouTube channel, Kempf described himself as the “New Zealand Fistball rep and catcher of phones.”
The phone was an iPhoneX. That’s an expensive bit of kit.
A good catch from what I assume is a good bloke.
If, again, another man amazingly catches phone when someone else on the rollercoaster drops it, that will be another unbelievable incident - and feat.
