Moron of the Day: Teen drops cell phone down storm drain, gets stuck while trying to retrieve it

Meet 16-year-old Ella Birchenough from the UK.

Nowadays, most of us can’t bear to be without our trusty mobile phone.

Clearly 16-year-old Ella Birchenough felt that way as she hopped into a drain to try and fetch her Blackberry after it fell out of her pocket. Unfortunately, she got stuck and had to be rescued by firefighters.

According to onlookers, the teen was quite relaxed about it all – and far more concerned with retrieving her phone. She told KentOnline: “I was talking to somebody and I went to put my phone in my pocket and it fell down the drain.

“I thought to myself, ‘I’m not leaving this’ and I jumped down to get it. I wasn’t really even stuck, I just needed somebody to help lift me out but my mum got all panicky.

“When they pulled me out I ran straight home and jumped in the bath. I think it was just water but I wasn’t taking any chances.”

While Ella emerged from the drain unscathed, the same can’t be said for her phone, which is now broken.
