Toronto Woman Rescues iPhone After Dropping it Onto a Neighbour’s Balcony

Liz Bertorelli, a woman who lives in an apartment building in Toronto, dropped her iPhone onto a vacant balcony below, and after unsuccessful attempts to contact her neighbours and inform the building manager, she took to Twitter to chronicle her attempts to retrieve her phone. Her rescue mission lasted two days, through rain and several failed attempts, during which she attracted a huge following on social media.


When Bertorelli dropped her iPhone, he could see it on the balcony below, but couldn’t reach it. “What did I do tonight? Oh ya know, dropped my phone off balcony to the unit below,” she Tweeted at 4:48 a.m, with a photo of the scene (shown above). Her Tweet soon received thousands of responses, following which she continued documenting the process.
