The iPhone X costs hundreds of dollars so losing one won't just ruin your day, it will ruin your week and maybe even your month. Of course, since phones are also used for taking photos and recording videos, it's hard not to have it out a lot to capture life's special moments. That might explain why one rider on the Shambhala roller coaster at Spain's Port Aventura Park was holding their iPhone X while flying at speeds of up to 83 miles an hour. Unfortunately for that person, the phone got away from them.

Since until last year, the ride was the tallest and fastest coaster in all of Europe, the phone was pretty much as good as gone, but thankfully for its owner, a man with incredibly fast reflexes was sitting a few rows back and he made a miraculous save, catching the phone.

He posted the video recorded by the roller coaster, which shows him seeing the phone, reaching for it and somehow grabbing it out of midair. The man spends the rest of the ride not just enjoying the thrill of a coaster, but the amazing feeling of having made such a good save.
