iPhone falls off Eiger north face while recording

At least they didn't drop HM The Queen From 1,000 feet without a parachute. But Gary Connery, who impersonated HM in the pink dress at the Olympic opening ceremony, has been up to more fun and games. He jumped off the north face of the Eiger, a favourite walking location of mine. I don't climb, though. More to the point, Gary dropped an iPhone from 1,000 feet with the camera running. Have a look at this if you want a thrill.

The camera was still recording when the device landed near Kleine Scheidegg. Even though the phone was encased in a G-Form protective case, it's an impressive performance.
