The BlackBerry Curve saves man from deadly fall

You may not be a fan of the BlackBerry Curve, but 52 year old David Fitzherbert sure is.

While skiing the glacier in the Matterhorn and Monterosa peaks when the snow gave way beneath him, sending him down towards the depths of the crevasse. “After 70 feet it narrowed and I became stuck like a cork in a bottle between the walls,” said Fitzherbert . “Fortunately the extra inches of the Blackberry were enough to block the fall.”

Fitzherbet said the width of his phone was enough to catch and hold him between two rocks. He broke his jaw, smashed his teeth, cracked a bone in his chest, and nearly tore his nose off. His mountain guide made a distress call, and a mountain-rescue team dug him out.

It’s too bad they don’t make an Otterbox case for the rest of your body. Those cases are strong enough to stop an avalanche no problem.

    It was a Bold, not a curve, in the man’s pocket.
