A mobile phone lost at sea for four days washed up in perfect condition in Taiwan after drifting 37 km and was discovered by a park lifeguard who tracked down the shocked owner to return it, the finder said on Friday.

Yu Hsin-leh of Taipei lost the phone on July 24 while snorkeling near the Taiwan port city of Keelung, Taiwan’s United Daily News reported.

On Monday, it turned up in Longdong Bay Park on the island’s northeasternmost cape after floating past numerous towns and rocky outcroppings.

A small water-resistant case had protected the phone at sea, said park lifeguard Lin Huan-chuan, who found it.

Lin said he recharged the battery and called Yu’s wife by finding her in the phone’s list of saved numbers.

I don’t care what brand the phone was; but, I surely would love to know who made the waterproof case?
