    Default Man Drowns Trying to Retrieve Mobile Phone From Sewer

    SHEBOYGAN, Wis. A 41-year-old man drowned after getting stuck in a storm sewer trying to retrieve a cell phone, police said.

    The man weighed more that 300 pounds and was wedged with his head and shoulders underwater in a vertical storm drain in front of his home Wednesday, said police Lt. Tim Eirich.

    The man's identity was not released pending notification of relatives.

    Neighbor Chris Van Erem said he saw the man kneeling over the sewer before he fell in. Police said the man pulled the iron gate off trying to get the cell phone.

    Then, a child from the neighborhood ran toward Van Erem frantically. Van Erem said he then saw the man's feet sticking up out of the grate.

    "I ran over and tried to pull him on out," Van Erem said. "Absolutely helpless was the feeling. I couldn't budge him."

    Van Erem had the child call emergency services as he continued to try to free the man.

    "I could see his head and his shoulders were completely under the water," he said. "His legs weren't moving. He was completely unresponsive."

    Van Erem said it ultimately took six firefighters to pull the man from the sewer. Sheboygan County Coroner David Leffin ruled the man's death as an accidental drowning.

    The man's cell phone was later found at the bottom of the sewer, police said.

    41 and 300 lbs? He should have known better. I'm 290 and 43, no cell phone is worth it.

    I know exactly what he was thinking, he didn't want to lose all of the phone numbers that he'd programmed in and HAD NO BACKUP for.

    Dumbass.

    Take ten minutes, people, and copy all of the phone numbers and addresses in your cell phones and PDAs. You will either lose them, break them or lose them. Nobody will feel sorry for you either.

    Especially if your dead, fat ass is sitting out of a storm drain.

    Yeah...like he could never ask the people again..."What's your phone number"....

    Personally, my memory has been fucked by these cell phones...I can't remember phone numbers anymore...because when I want to call somebody I just click their name...

    Brilliant. Not quite worthy of a Darwin award... but close.

    I was getting ready for a show once in the Men's Room of a Minneapolis club, and some preppy guy came in to take a piss while talking on his cell. He was leaning his head on the phone while standing at the urinal, and a short while into his piss the phone slipped off his shoulder into the urinal, and it instantly became doused in his own liquid expel. His range of emotions in the three seconds that followed was truly vast; he gave an immediate "oh shit" comment, then turned to me with a look like he needed help, then sympathy, then he looked washed with embarrassment. I just gave a very small laugh and walked out thinking: What a dumbass!
