This was funny, in a morbid sort of way. It didn’t actually happen and hopefully never will, but with today’s percieved need to be connected all the time…it just might happen someday…hopefully not though.
APALACHICOLA, FL—Catherine Polk, 24, died at a local Starbucks Monday afternoon, due to complications resulting from the tragic loss of her cell phone. “It was horrible—Cathy didn’t have any of her numbers written down anywhere else, and she was waiting on a call about last-minute tickets for a concert,” said best friend Melissa Barreth, who was with Polk when she first discovered that her Cingular V400 quad band/GSM cell phone was not in her purse. “We tried everything to find it, but in the end, there was nothing we could do.” The coroner’s report confirmed that Polk died of a sudden lack of wireless service.
