Skydiver Jarrod McKinney thought his iPhone 4 was doomed when it fell from his pocket at 13,500 feet.

It didn’t land in a cushy field either. The phone landed on top of a building; McKinney found it a half mile from the landing zone.

The phone’s glass was severely shattered. Other than that, the device was intact.

McKinny jokingly called the phone — and it went through.

He plans to get the screen fixed and keep using his iPhone 4.

Here’s the full story (and a picture of the actual phone) on CNN >>
