GDT Webinar Series – How to Fail at Security? Reserve Your Spot

Cowboys' McFadden not among 25 weirdest phone-related injuries

There’s just not much worse than dropping an unprotected phone.
The seconds that separate the initial phone fumble from its final collision with earth are harrowing to say the least. There’s the ill-fated swipe to regain possession, followed by the hacky sack-style kick attempt, and, ultimately, should all of that fail, the final open-palmed, arms outstretched miming of where we wish the thing had landed.
So, when reports surfaced that Dallas Cowboys running back Darren McFadden broke his elbow (ouch) attempting to catch a falling iPhone, we all collectively shook our heads knowingly. Good job, good effort, Darren. Can’t blame ya. Nothing kills mobility like a shattered screen.
Recently, however, McFadden explained that he didn’t injure himself diving for a loose phone. Rather, he slipped on wet cement near a friend’s pool – iPhone in hand. Perhaps his focus on maintaining possession of his phone played a role in the nature of his injury, but the phone, itself, was not the cause.
With that, McFadden – who is expected to be back on the field at the start of the season next month – avoided Network World’s next list of real-life ways people have been hurt using their phones. These other 25 people did not share his fate.
