For This Girl, Retrieving Her Lost Phone Was A Draining Experience

16 year old British got stuck in a drain when she dropped her Blackberry in it.

It was not a good day for 16-year-old girl Ella Birchenough from Kent when, first her phone went down the drain, and then she did.

Describing the incident to KentOnline, she said, "I was talking to somebody and I went to put my phone in my pocket and it fell down the drain. 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.

Later, firefighters managed to pull her out of the drain unharmed but, in case you were wondering, the phone didn’t make it.

As soon as the news broke out, Twitter went abuzz with people posting their reactions to the story.
