This Irish lad lost his phone during a bungee jump, and his reaction was priceless

Ah now.

WELL, IT SOUNDS better than “I dropped it down the toilet” anyway…

Mayo man Máirtín Farragher is currently on holidays in South Africa, and being a braver man than most attempted a bungee jump off Bloukran’s Bridge.

After successfully jumping off, his phone slipped out of his pocket and into the canyon below… And some very colourful language ensued.

Ah Máirtín. Ah MÁIRTÍN. Look at it go:


The worst part? This same phone had been stolen during a trip to Italy earlier this year, then recovered by police.

Yesterday I learned a valuable lesson: Don’t do a bungee jump with your phone in your pocket. It’s at the bottom of a canyon now in South Africa!

We’ll keep that in mind for when we go bungee jumping (which will be never). Hard luck, Máirtín!
