A man showed off his lightning-quick reflexes when he caught a stranger’s phone while riding a roller coaster in Catalonia, Spain.
Samuel Kempf, who lives in New Zealand, visited the theme park Port Aventura World last month and rode the Shambhala roller coaster. He noticed something weird while being whiplashed through the huge peaks and falls of the ride. He catches an iPhone X dropped by a rider on the coaster ahead of him.
The catch is so spontaneous you might miss it if you blink. It seems miraculous that he was able to respond so rapidly, particularly in an environment that is wildly overwhelming to most individuals. But watch the background melt away as SirSammy celebrates his catch with those around him, as though the group were not flying through the air.
An on-ride camera captured the moment Kempf caught the phone while riding the 80-mph coaster. Kempf told a local news station he returned the phone to the owner when the ride was over.
“He couldn’t believe it, he gave me a big hug,” Kempf said.
