2 people killed, others hurt after woman drops cell phone in toilet


XINXIANG CITY, China  — Two people were killed and three were injured after a woman dropped her cellphone into a sewage pit in China. The tragedy unfolded after a woman dropped her new phone into an “open pit” toilet, according to the South China Morning Post.

Her husband attempted to retrieve the phone — but fell unconscious due to the smell of the knee-deep sewage. His mother then jumped in to rescue him, but she also fainted.

The woman who dropped the phone, her father-in-law and two neighbors also jumped in; they all also fell unconscious.

All six people were rescued after neighbors lowered a rope into the pit.

The woman’s husband and mother-in-law both died at the hospital. Two others were also hospitalized.
