Gregory Papadin, while vacationing dropped his iPhone into the ocean. Not only did the iPhone survived the ordeal, it captured the entire event, the ocean, the divers' attempts to recover it and some of the marine life itself.

In the YouTube description for the video, Papadin writes how his brother tried throwing his phone into the ocean and it ended up going straight under water and sank to bottom of the ocean floor, "The underwater pressure was too much for both my brother and I to swim and get it, but the owner of the boat we rented was able to reduce the pressure using a special breathing method meant for diving (equalization). He was able to retrieve it, and my phone managed to survive the whole ordeal!"

Similar videos have gone viral in the past, most famously when a camera was dropped from an airplane which ended up in a pig pen.

In another one, a camera was dropped by a skydiver from a hight of 3000 meters. The video is sure to make your head spin.
