Miami, FL — A U.S. Postal Service employee died while trying to retrieve his cell phone, which had fallen into a storm drain on Tuesday, February 7, 2012. The fatal accident occurred just after midnight at the USPS’ Miami Processing and Distribution Center on Northwest 72nd Avenue, reported the Huffington Post.

According to police, the victim was walking across the parking lot when he apparently dropped his cell phone into the storm drain by accident. The man then fell into the drain through a manhole.
