A Good Catch: Man Plucks Smartphone Out Of Thin Air While On A Roller Coaster
Let's face it: some people have cat-like reflexes, while some can't even catch anything even it's in slow-mo.

However, this one man's reflexes is so extraordinary, we are pretty sure even The Flash would approve.

Our reflexes not very good.
A video showing a man reflexively catching a falling smartphone has gone viral online.

Why is it such a big deal, you ask? Well, the man caught the flying phone while he was on a roller coaster!

According to a report in Philippine Daily Inquirer, the incident happened at the PortAventura World theme park in Tarragona, Spain.

The man, known as Samuel Kempf, was caught up in the thrill of riding the roller coaster, which was reportedly travelling at 130 kilometers per hour, when a smartphone belonging to another passenger on the same ride slipped from his hand.


Almost instinctively, Kempf reached out and caught the falling phone.

A video of his perfectly-timed catch was uploaded on YouTube, and it has since gone viral on social media:


Kempf held on to the device for the rest of the ride, as per the report. He then returned it to its owner after they got off from the ride.

Kempf told the news portal that he received a big hug from the phone’s owner when he returned it to him.

The video of the moment was captured on the camera that’s attached to the roller coaster’s carts, and the owner of the smartphone actually bought a copy of it for Kempf as a thank you for 'rescuing' his phone.

Thankfully for the smartphone owner, we weren't sitting behind him, because there's no way we would be able to catch the phone.
