OtterBox Survives For 23 Hours Against 75+ Trains

Read Article


What can I say? OtterBox saved my phone. On a Wednesday evening (3/10), I dropped my phone from a raised platform at Secaucus Junction in New Jersey onto the train tracks. To be safe, I obviously didn’t go get it, and so my phone sat there. And sat there. In the rain. And sat there, as over 75 trains ran over top of it in nearly 23 hours.

I had given up all hope of recovering my phone, let alone it working again. Well, I finally recovered my phone (thanks to NJ Transit) and not only is it in one piece, it’s working as good as new. I really don’t think my phone would have survived the high fall, weather and the trains without the OtterBox case.

I’m not one to go full in and support brands, but thanks, OtterBox. You saved my phone.
