PHOTOS: Girl Gets Stuck in Storm Drain While Trying to Retrieve Her BlackBerry

Sixteen-year-old Ella was talking to friends when she decided to put her phone in her pocket.

Instead of her pocket, her BlackBerry slipped right into a storm drain.

So, like any logical 16-year-old, she dove in to the storm drain to go get it.

"I thought to myself  ‘I’m not leaving this’ and I jumped down to get it," Ella told Kent Online.  "I wasn’t really even stuck, I just need somebody to help lift me out but my mum got all panicky."

She told a passerby to go alert her mother, he was a few doors down from where she was.

"I ran out of the house, turned the corner - but as soon as I saw her I burst out laughing," Ella's mom said.  "I thought 'we are never going to get her out of there' so I called the fire service who got there pretty quickly."

Police/fire were on scene quickly to get her out.  Sadly, her phone didn't survive the fall.

"We are going to have to replace the phone but I'm not too angry. Worst case scenario is she ends up with an old Nokia.  She is never going to live this down now. We will be bringing it out at her 18th birthday and her wedding."

Luckily the girl had a positive attitude the entire time.  Onlookers said she was laughing. 

"There have been a few nasty comments about me being fat which isn't nice but I'm trying not to take it to heart," Ella said.  "I was just laughing the whole time, I have seen the funny side of it. You just have to laugh along with it."
