Firefighters Rescue Drowned Phone; Have Fun With Confused Owner

You gotta love firefighters with sense of humor!

When Nathan Buhler dropped his Samsung mobile phone in a river in Calgary, Canada, he figured it was gone forever.

Time to get a new phone!

Not so fast!

The Calgary Sun reports weeks after that dreaded drop, two Calgary firefighters fished that phone out of the river.  Much to their surprise, when they turned the phone on, it worked.

How to find the owner?

How do we do everything these days?

Through social media.

These firefighters decided to have a little fun in the process.

They used Nathan’s Facebook app to start posting pictures to his page, featuring the phone!

Like the phone driving one of the fire engines:

As the pictures got more and more elaborate, the firefighters decided the phone needed a name.  It became, “Hector Sanchez.”

Nathan at first was confused, then amused, and finally very appreciative to be reunited with Hector.
