For people who want thrill in their lives, performing the act of public service that a man did at a Barcelona theme park is a must-try. Reportedly, the man caught a stranger’s smartphone in mid-air while riding a roller coaster.
Samuel Kempf, who was in Spain representing New Zealand in the Fistballing World Championship, thought of riding a roller coaster at Barcelona’s PortAventura theme park. While on the ride, he noticed that a man had dropped his smartphone into the bottom of his car and was unable to pick it up.
In an interview with Stuff New Zealand, Kempf said that he joked to his brother and other riders that when the ride dropped, they should “get ready to catch,” which Kempf did once the ride geared up with some speed.
“The ride started and I forgot about it because I was just in the moment ’cause it was such a good ride and then after the first drop we rose up and I just saw the phone drift across my view so I reached out and managed to catch it,” he said.
When the ride ended, Kempf returned the phone to the grateful man and realized that his incredible public service act had been captured by the ride’s reaction video.
As a token of gratitude, the stranger who lost his phone bought Kempf the video of the memorable roller coaster ride, and so, Kempf’s good deed did not go unrewarded.
