Davies also explained to the outlet how the device fell into the river.
“I was in a two-person canoe and my partner probably shouldn’t have stood up, and of course we fell,” he said. “The phone was in my back pocket and as soon as I was in the water I realized it was missing.”
He also praised Pacheco for going to great lengths to save the device. “My natural reaction was to hand it over to the nearest pub. Not use my air compressor to dry and disassemble it,” he says.
