If you have an I-Phone you know how easy it is to crack the screen. One woman accidentally put it to the ultimate test.

Angela Dalton and her son Grant took a ride on a “Tail Wager”.
“I was snapping shots here and there and as we were flying over the Dothan area, I wanted to take some pictures of my neighborhood. It was still kind of far away so I went to zoom in a little bit and the wind ripped it out of my hands”, said Dalton.

The phone fell 1,400 feet at 100 MPH, right in Eric Hall’s front yard.

“I went inside and plugged it in to charge and called one of the most frequent numbers called and it happened to be the pilot. He paused and said really you found the phone, and I said yeah it was in my front yard. He said well what does it look like? I said, great like it dropped out of someone’s pocket”, said Hall.

Angela has her own idea of how the phone didn’t crumble into a million pieces.

“I think it was God wanting to have a little fun, he was bored and wanted to have fun,” said Dalton.
