A woman was caught on camera recently absolutely losing her mind after accidentally dropping her cell phone into a lake, fighting like mad for the chance to jump in after her beloved communication device.
The attention-catching scene was filmed by a fellow passenger on a cruise on Yunnan’s scenic Erhai Lake. For more than a minute, the distressed woman desperately tries to throw herself overboard and is only prevented from doing so by a group of five or six people who restrain her while also trying their best to talk some sense into her.
In the end, the woman doesn’t leap into the lake and the passenger is shamed into putting his own cell phone down by the woman’s friends, as he claims that he wasn’t actually filming in the first place.
According to Sina Video, workers attempted to dredge up the woman’s mobile phone, but with no success. Where the phone fell in, the water was about 7 meters deep.
On Weibo, one netizen guessed that the woman wasn’t really upset about losing her phone, but about losing the ability to send photos and videos to her friends’ circle on WeChat. “Without that what’s the sense of traveling?”
