Three men died trying to rescue a mobile phone from an open-pit latrine in Nairobi. The phone's owner dropped her phone down the pit during a conversation, and offered 1,000 shillings (equivalent to 3 weeks wages) to anyone who could recover it.
A 30 year old radio technician tried first, but did not return. His friend attempted to rescue him, but slipped & fell into the murky depths. Finally a third man was rendered unconscious trying to rescue the first 2 men. He died on route to hospital.
Police apparently stopped a fourth man's attempted rescue, and the search was abandoned. http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=st...enya_latrine_dc
