Don’t you get a mini heart-attack every time you drop your smartphone onto the floor? Now imagine dropping the phone while skydiving! The same horror happened with Kody Madro in Eloy, Arizona.

Kody’s phone fell from his pocket at a height of around 12,000 ft while skydiving. It is while shooting the video his friend noticed something had flown out of his pocket, however, at that particular moment, the 31-year-old diver was not aware that it was his iPhone that fell accidentally.

After landing, Kody couldn’t locate his phone and searched it using ‘Find my iPhone’ app in the desert.

When Kody found the device, the phone’s screen condition was quite terrible. However, the iPhone was functional for a period of two weeks after the incident. After that, it was entirely damaged. What is important here is the fact that the phone was still in functional condition despite the damage that had been done to its body.

Following the incident, Kody took to Instagram to share the clip of the moment in which his phone fell off from his pocket.

In the second half of the clip, Kody has shown how his phone is still functional despite the screen being terribly damaged. To make sure it is not hanging, he taps on an app, which smoothly opens. Remarkably, the sides of the phone do not look damaged at all.
