Hero Catches a Stranger's Phone Mid-Air While Riding a Roller Coaster

If you need more thrills, consider performing the act of public service that a New Zealand man did at a Barcelona theme park: catching a stranger’s phone in mid-air while riding a roller coaster.

Samuel Kempf, who was in Spain representing New Zealand in the Fistballing World Championship, decided to ride a roller coaster at Barcelona’s PortAventura theme park. While on the ride, he saw that a man had dropped his phone into the bottom of his car and couldn’t pick it up.

In an interview with Stuff New Zealand, Kempf said that he joked to his brother and other riders that when the ride dropped, they should “get ready to catch,” which Kempf actually did once the ride picked up some speed.

What is fistball, you ask?
