iPhone Drop Taiwan Sun Moon Lake
Taiwan may be experiencing its worst drought in 56-years, but for one man, this is a blessing. This person was paddleboarding on the famous Sun Moon Lake during March, 2020, when the iPhone 11 Pro Max that he wore around his neck in a waterproof bag accidentally fell into the body of water after slipping. Since the lake has basically dried up, the man, surnamed Chen, was able to retrieve it, and after removing the phone, everything powered up like new.
