Missing mobile phone found inside fish

A businessman who lost his mobile phone on a beach was amazed when it turned up — in the belly of a massive cod. Andrew Cheatle thought his Nokia handset had been lost at sea after it slipped from his pocket.

But a week later his girlfriend's mobile rang and it was fisherman Glen Kerley saying he had found the phone in a 25lb fish. Andrew got the handset back, dried it out — and amazingly it still works.

Andrew, 45, said: "I was messing about with my dog and my phone must have fallen out and been swept out in the swell. I kept calling it but I gave up hope after a couple of days."

strange world

He was shopping for a new phone with girlfriend Rita Smith, 33, when her mobile went off. She told him: "Your old mobile number is calling my phone."

Andrew continued: " She said some guy was going on about my phone and a cod so she handed it over to me and he told me where he had found it. I thought he was winding me up but he assured me he had caught a cod that morning and was gutting it for his fish stall and that my Nokia was inside it a bit worse for wear. "

"I didn't believe him but went to meet him and found it was my phone ” a bit smelly and battered ” but incredibly it still worked after I let it dry out."

It's a hoax, firstly we are told that the fisherman rang the girlfriend on the phone, then the owner says "It worked after we dried it out". Implying that it did not work beforehand i.e.whilst still wet.
The things that some people will do in search of 5 minutes of fame beggars belief. Absolute garbage.
