Did You Hear About The Guy Who Died After Jumping Into A Freezing-Cold River To Save His Cell Phone?

Whether you want to admit it or not, your cell phone is important to you. Very, very, very important. So important that you would probably do just about anything to protect it. It is, after all, your lifeline to the rest of the world, and it contains all of your most important information. So it makes sense that you would want to keep it safe. But there is a limit to what you should do in order to make sure that it’s OK.

For example, if you find yourself putting yourself into harm’s way for your phone, YOU’RE DOING TOO MUCH! And unfortunately, a 26-year-old man from Minnesota and two of his friends found that out the hard way recently. The man died after he accidentally dropped his phone into the freezing-cold Chicago River and then jumped into the river to try and save it. Once it was clear that he was in real danger, the man’s two friends jumped in after him in an effort to rescue him and his phone. One of those friends, a 23-year-old man, is now in the hospital and in stable condition. But the other friend, a 21-year-old woman, is still missing and has been presumed dead. So not one person but two people died….over a cell phone. A CELL PHONE! That’s just ridiculous.

Hopefully, this teaches all of you a lesson. Your cell phone is important, and you should do whatever you need to do to take care of it. But if you find yourself putting your body into serious danger to protect it, it’s not worth it. That means you shouldn’t do anything stupid if someone tries to rob you for it. You shouldn’t dive headfirst into a manhole if you drop it. And you shouldn’t take a plunge into a frozen river to try and retrieve it. It’s just not worth it! OK?
