A German teenager who dropped his iPhone over the side of a boat while on a fishing trip decided to drain the entire pond to get it back.The desperate 16-year-old decided on the drastic action after an angling club refused to let him dive for his cell. He sneaked back to the pond hours after the fishing trip ended — armed with pumps and two hoses. He tried to direct the pond water into the club’s toilet, but ended up flooding a parking lot. This alerted police, who foiled his plan to get his iPhone back. “I thought two pumps would drain enough of the water from the pond so I could find my cellphone,” he told German media, according to Metro. “I knew the phone was probably dead but wanted to get the data card back with the numbers, pictures and videos of my friends.” The teenager has been ordered to pay for the damage to the angling club’s toilet, the clean-up operation and water to refill the pond. Even worse for the teenager, he did not retrieve his phone.
