Farmer gets iPhone back after 8-month international trip

TULSA, Okla. – An Oklahoma farmer’s iPhone lost when it fell into a grain elevator has been returned to him unscathed after it was found in Japan.

Kevin Whitney lost the phone in October when it slipped out of his shirt pocket as he was unloading grain from a truck into a silo in Chickasha.

The load traveled to a depot in Convent, Louisiana, and then was loaded onto a ship bound for the island of Hokkaido, Japan.

In late May, a worker at the Japanese facility phoned a counterpart in Louisiana, who then called Whitney asking whether he lost an iPhone.

Whitney said he’s glad to get the phone back because it had photos stored on it from his daughter’s wedding and vacation, and he thought those were lost forever.
