Rollercoaster rider manages to catch phone dropped by another passenger

Deserving of multiple mid-rollercoaster high-fives.

There are few things more palpitating than hearing the crash of your phone smacking grimly against the pavement after it slides from your grasp.

I can only imagine the nauseating feeling of your phone slipping out of your pocket while being shoved around the highs and lows of a rollercoaster, all the while wondering why the hell you didn’t just leave it with someone else.

Luckily for one such thrillseeker of a rollercoaster in Spain, there was a superbly talented individual on board, with such lightning quick responses even Bruce Lee would love to have.

CCTV footage captured on-board the Shambhala rollercoaster at PortAventura Park shows a rider effortless catching a phone as it fell from the skies. Seemingly unfussed by the speed and height he was travelling at, he manages to reach across and grab the falling phone. Given I can barely keep their eyes open on rides,  I am absolutely bowled over by this guy's skills.

The bloke is known as sirsammy 15 on YouTube and said:

"I caught a strangers phone in mid air on a roller coaster! I was in Spain at Port Aventura on Shambhala ride and saw the person a few rows ahead drop their IPhone X.

Long story short I caught it. This roller coaster is moving at over 130kms…was once Europe’s tallest and fastest coaster.. only recently beaten."

This is one of those legends that nobody would believe had it not been caught on camera.

One person said "In all my years on the internet this is probably the coolest shit I’ve ever seen".
