YouTuber Michael Bennett posted a video earlier this week after he found an Apple iPhone in a waterproof case at the bottom of the Edisto river in South Carolina. It had apparently been lying there for around 15 months. In an interview with local news channel WDAM 7, Bennet described that it was difficult to find the owner of the device. He was not able to unlock the phone to find some information related to the owner since it was password protected.
So, he removed the SIM card in the iPhone and inserted it into a different phone and with this he managed to get the contact information of the owner. After getting the relevant information, he returned the iPhone to its rightful owner. In a huge coincidence, the phone belonged to a Bennet too! Her name was Erica Bennett and she had lost the smartphone during a family trip on June 19, 2018. It was clarified that she was not a kin of the YouTuber.
Surprisingly the iPhone was returned to the owner in working condition. Erica was moved by the gesture and was extremely happy to get her handset back because there were some last messages that she had exchanged with her late father.

"It was kind of emotional because the last thing I have from him is saying, `Hey I`m playing phone tag with you, so I just figured I just text you, how are you feeling?` And I think he had called me after that. I`m pretty sure it was Father`s Day," Erica Bennett was quoted by WDAM 7.
