Ella Birchenough dropped her Blackberry into a storm drain after fumbling to get it into her pocket (don't laugh, we've all been there). Not content with losing it forever, she attempted to excavate the phone herself. Then, in a scene straight out of Every Cartoon Ever, her legs were left dangling while her upper torso was stuck in the drain. Birchenough insisted that she didn't need assistance, but her panicked mother called the local fire department to help get her out safely.

The phone, however, now belongs to the rats and sewer mutants.

On an interesting side note, Nash later credited a DVD copy of the film Angels in the Outfield she had been carrying with her for saving the day.
