Governmental food inspector of India Rajesh Vishwas dropped his Samsung smartphone while taking selfie in Kherkatta dam in the central Indian state of Chhattisgarh.

印度政府食安稽查員拉杰許‧維什瓦斯在中部恰蒂斯加爾邦克爾卡塔水庫自拍時,不慎讓三星智慧型手機掉入水庫。

Vishwas first asked local divers to jump into the reservoir to find the device, claiming it contained sensitive government data. But after the efforts failed, he asked for the reservoir to be emptied using diesel pumps.

維什瓦斯起初要求當地潛水員潛入水庫找手機,宣稱手機裡存有敏感的政府數據。但隨著行動失敗,他要求用柴油抽水機將水庫抽乾。

Over the next three days, more than 2 million liters of water were pumped out from the reservoir, which is enough to irrigate at least 1,500 acres of land during India’s scorching summer.

接下來的3天,超過200萬公升的水被抽出水庫,這個水量足夠在印度炙熱的夏季灌溉至少1500英畝土地。

Vishwas said that he had received permission from a senior official to drain it. The smartphone was eventually retrieved but wouldn’t even start because it was waterlogged.

維什瓦斯說,他有獲得一名資深官員同意將水庫抽乾。雖然手機最後有找回來,但因為泡水,根本無法開機。

Authorities later suspended Vishwas after he was widely criticized for wasting water resources.(AP)
