Iphone lost in river- found!

  • from Peoria (Arizona, United States)

I got a call from a guy who’s teen daughter had dropped her phone (which was in a waterproof case & containing hundreds and hundreds of unbacked or “cloud”ed pictures of her young teen life) in the Salt River while tubing. She was devastated. He said it was in about 3-4 feet of water near the shore and they had pinned the appx. spot. I was unable to make it in a timely manner so I suggested to him that because of the bulk of the phone he go to Big 5 and buy a hundred dollar bounty hunter detector and not install the coil on the shaft which would give him 5-6 feet of search depth. I advised him to have someone else hold the control box above the surface. The next day he texted me saying they had found the phone- still on- and with 25% power left on it! He told me both he and daughter couldn’t wait to find more stuff with the detector. More detectorists born! I just had to share this. Bryan Mihalek, Member of The Ringfinders in Arizona.
