XINXIANG CITY, China – Two people were killed and several others were injured after a woman dropped her cell phone into a sewage pit in China, according to the South China Morning Post.
The woman went to use an “open-pit” toilet and dropped her brand new phone inside the hole, SCMP reported.
The woman who dropped the phone then followed and also passed out. Finally, the woman’s father-in-law and two neighbors jumped in; they all also fell unconscious.
Several other neighbors then lowered a rope into the pit and pulled out the six victims.
The woman’s husband and mother-in-law both died at the hospital. Two others were also hospitalized.
