Life is like a roller coaster. It has ups and downs, it makes us nauseous, everybody's screaming, and we're all clinging to life by the promise of a manmade structure remaining intact. But also because there are occasional mishaps on coasters, and with them, opportunities for people to help each other out.
And a New Zealand man knows all about that, as he's just gone viral for catching someone's cell phone midair on a roller coaster.
Samuel Kempf was riding a coaster at Spain's PortAventura amusement park, when the incident occurred.
He'd been in Europe representing New Zealand in the world championship for fistballing, which is sort of like volleyball but you're allowed to bounce the ball and it sounds a lot more intense because of the word fist.
After Kemf uploaded his impressive catch to YouTube, he explained the experience in an interview with Stuff New Zealand.
在塞缪尔·肯普夫将他这个令人印象深刻的视频上传到YouTube后，他接受了Stuff New Zealand的采访并解释了自己的经历。
He'd first noticed that, before the ride's drop, a man two rows ahead of him had dropped his phone out of reach in the car.
"He was trying to reach down and grab it but because he was locked in he couldn't reach it," he told Stuff. "And I just jokingly said to my brother and the people we were with 'get ready to catch.'"
Then the joke was over.
