This was what happened when a cellphone was found by a scuba diver who saw it light up when the handset got a text.

Cerys Hearsey was diving off the shoreline of Dorset in the UK on Saturday when her attention was attracted to the lit-up Apple handset. She lifted it and returned the gadget to shore. Incredibly, it was still in flawless working request and had 84 percent of its battery life left.

"My cousin can't believe it. He was upset at first and thought that he would need to pay another $900 for a new phone," Rob Smith told The Mirror.
